The following is a poem for the NBI 2014 Poetry slam. The theme for this year’s slam is “magic”:
Time to slow the mind, but it won’t slow down
visions of posts and tweets and words
rush over me like the water from the shower
a concept forms. An analogy, perhaps. Something incredibly clever.
NBI, for the uninitiated, stands for Newbie Blogger Initiative. Further information about the endeavor can be found at their about page. This year, I’ve decided to participate in the month long initiative as one of the “newbies”. What is my motivation, exactly? What are my expectations? Those are great questions, and ones that I’ve been challenged to explore.
