The final Two-for-Tuesday prompt for this month is:
- Write a realism poem. A poem that is rooted in the real world. Or…
- Write a magical poem. A poem that incorporates magical or fantastical elements.
Or write like Gabriel Garcia Marquez and do both!
The Rude Awakening
By John Yeo
I drifted freely in a magical sky
With my wings outstretched I began to fly,
From cloud to cloud through the intense blue
I drifted and danced my way to you.
I passed a magical fish flying by
Swimming in the Cerulean Sapphire sky.
A voice broke into my high journey
From across the shores of the skyful sea.
Half aware and still flying free
I wondered who could be calling to me.
I was rudely brought back to reality.
When I awoke from my magical reverie.
Get out of bed! It is getting late!
Breakfast is ready and it will not wait.
I crawled out to face another cold day
On my bike in the rain, and on my way,
Soaked to the skin, in the heartless city,
From a magical dream I faced harsh reality.
