I got the inspiration for this poem during the Shakespeare class that I take. My teacher wrote the phrase which serves as the title up on the board to describe the play “The Winter’s Tale.” I was fascinated by the phrase and I used it as the foundation for this piece. Enjoy.
A wish for life to be temporally expansive,
A day’s length is not fit for adventure.
Expand reality, stare deep into the cloudy pensive,
Find the deeper meanings, what we’re here for.
Twenty-four is but a man made object,
And like all else, we can manipulate
It’s objective, just open your mind and forget.
Take control, your only way to liberate.
Feel the breeze flow gently through your hair.
Let the good vibes re-align your day.
Not all the motions require you to care.
Make time; seize life’s many gifts. And play.
