The Sun Looks Pretty on Me

NaPoWriMo Day 19

Today, our optional prompt challenges you to write a poem based on a “walking archive.” What’s that? Well, it’s when you go on a walk and gather up interesting things – a flower, a strange piece of bark, a rock. This then becomes your “walking archive” – the physical instantiation of your walk. If you’re unable to get out of the house (as many of us now are), you can create a “walking archive” by wandering around your own home and gathering knick-knacks, family photos, maybe a strange spice or kitchen gadget you never use. Once you’ve finished your gathering, lay all your materials out on a tray table, like museum specimens. Now, let your group of materials inspire your poem!

Today my “walking archive” is composed of a book  “The Sun is Also a Star” and some old newspaper clips on whitening products becoming more popular among Asians.

planets, stars, galaxies, dust clouds,
light and even time made up
the universe, all that we
feel and we touch
is part of the
grandiose that
the universe
there
is

 

earth is where we are and of
the 7.8 billion population
I am one of them
the lucky one
to have lived
survived
enjoyed
earth’s
finest
the sun is what I love the most I swear
its blazing, fiery orange-yellow color
when it rises, signifies vibrant
day ahead, then it turns to
eternal yellow as it sets
brings peace as the
day ends in
perfect
bliss

 

some fellow
don’t like
sun
I don’t know with them but
the sun looks pretty on me

    What a wonderful poem to honor the sun! And to remind us all to be proud of our skin…seems light people wanna’ look darker and dark people wanna’ look lighter. :-/ When of the colors are beautiful and needed in our world! 🙂
