My latest in the weekly Three Line Thursday poetry contest wherein you provide three lines of poetry and they provide the above picture. Luckily this week, I received an honorable mention with the following gracious (pun~!) feedback:
“The opening line drew me in quickly. Lush prose paints a vivid image in my mind. The broader statement here is a sad but true state of affairs in the world today. “…always the next thing.” Is this all we’ve become? Disposable in a disposable world? Fantastic!”
Now the poem:
The vibrancy of life trampled underfoot,
as we hurtle to the next thing, always the next thing,
never seeing what’s left in our wake, wanting.
