Pink Petal Power

Day 30 of NaPoWriMo.  I got 26 in 30 days.  Not too bad.

Today’s prompt is to write a poem in reverse.  You can “start with the last line and work your way up the page to the beginning.”  Or you can “take a poem you’ve already written, and flip the order of the lines and from there, edit it so the poem now works with its new order.”  I went the second route, this is a reverse poem of one of the poems, The Cherry Blossom Chorus  I wrote back in 2013 NaPoWriMo.

Pink Petal Power

New hopes, new dreams, new beginnings.
The cherry blossoms flutter and join the chorus of
grins and smiles and the din of joy
of my numerous walkers, skaters, and cyclists.

The esplanade is alive, with
yellow rays, pulsating and piercing through blue-grey skies
the sun wakes the city from deep slumber.

Soft patter of tiny, pounding of big feet
on concrete, provide the rhythm, as
ripples of wind whisper
sweet nothings to still waters,
and join the visual symphony of pink petals.
