Midnight Solitude

Intergenerational Description of Joint Project

I worked on this poem with my Creative Writing teacher.  I chose to write a poem and constructed a draft.  She helped me edit it several times, such as changing capitalization and rearranging the poem to enhance its structure.  I enjoyed working with someone not only with a unique perspective on nature, but knowledge on the creative aspect of writing in order to convey this perspective to the reader.

Celebration of Rachel Carson’s Sense of Wonder

The poem harmonizes nature with the inner self, portraying a unique relationship every person has to the natural world. Writing this helped us reflect on how moments of solitude can help us reconnect with nature and ourselves.

Midnight Solitude

Light and Dark.
Peering above through the ebony window at
this glowing orb, these sparkling stars, this velvet curtain
and finding the milky mirror
that reflects a midnight battle in the sky, in my mind.

Ying and Yang.
Coexisting, neither outshining the others,
this glowing orb, these sparkling stars, this velvet curtain
breathe in solitude and harmony,
and I watch, as each searches for its own peace.

Noise and Quiet.
Revealing my deepest thoughts and prayers to
this glowing orb, these sparkling stars, this velvet curtain
that listen and nod in agreement
as I discover my peace.
