Moments

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Agree to Disagree.”

Tenuous but this is what my mind came up with.

Moments

 By Scott Bailey © 2015

The world clashes with me
Or I with it
Its movie reel passes before me
And I watch
Observe
But I am not of it
Occasionally
I brushes me
Pricks me
Interrupts my view
My observations
And the things I should enjoy
I don’t
Until I can observe them
Again one day
My moments pass
Slipping
I can never seem
To be in them

  1. A prime example of how poetry can mean different things to different people….
    For some reason this makes me think of being behind my camera. When we go on vacation sometimes I feel like I miss being a part of the vacation or watching a live show because I am always looking at it through the lens. I am always “observing” when I long to “be in”!
    Very nicely done.
