OctPoWriMo: Day 14

It is time for the poetic form?!?!? I don't really know, I just enjoy writing poems that have a flowing feeling, like Cascades and Pantoums. Today's poem is a cascade. My favourite part of doing OctPoWriMo is seeing what the presenters offer up for their poetic tributes.

Prompt: Reckoning / Poetic Form: Cascade

'Reckon (It's Time)

It's like waking up

after a long sleep;

seeing the fog clear away

slowing receding past your sight,

exposing the  world--

it's like waking up.

The birth of a new day

when the breeze dries the amniotic dew

slowing receding past your austere sight.

All that is left is 

the afterbirth of your reckoning--

the birth of a new day

birth of your truth

what you see now, instead of

all that is left.
