Art Class Poem
In my AP Art class, we did an exercise that involved writing a line of poetry and then having our neighbor write the next. We were only allowed to see one line before the line we were writing. It was a lot of fun, and I think it came out wonderful. Let me know what you think about it!
The lightning bugs glowed like the moon reflecting off of the ocean,
Burning brighter than the sun, yet as soft as a candle,
A truth in all lies, manipulating the convinced,
Not knowing what is coming next,
A meteor about to crash down,
Star dust glittering in the grass,
Like diamonds that fell from the heavens,
Like a song written to the sound of your eyes,
With the beat going along with the rythm of your heart,
As loud and thunderous as mighty drums,
The world goes silent once again.
