30 Day Poetry Challenge: Day 9

Day 9- Quickly jot down four verbs, four adjectives, and four nouns. Write a poem using all 12 words.

verbs: run, climb, jump, fall

adjectives: fast, beautiful, bright, happy

nouns: mountain, sunset, television, lake

Aaaand here’s my poem:

Taking that first step is never simple,

But I will go, I will climb.

Ascend the mountain, no matter how steep,

For the chance to enjoy the view of the

Beautiful sunset that will hang low in the evening.

I will run,

Run, run, run,

So I don’t miss out on this bright, grand view.

Scale the mountain by the lake as fast as I can,

Breathe it all in for the chance to revive.

Although I can’t be certain what will happen

When I jump down from my deep ascent,

In this moment, I am happy.

I will not fall, I will not kneel down, I will not give in.

This beautiful moment is mine, all mine.

This is something

You cannot see on television.

In all its beauty and grandeur,

This experience is all mine,

And I will take it, gladly.
