she woke in the morning
the delivering moon was to late to leave
she noticed the stars outsidehanging around until they were told otherwise
outside her window the black sky pressedon her nightgown
hanging on a line in the morning breeze
when she stepped out of bed
the floor was cool under her toes
kept this way by the drifts of the unnatural night air
the world saw this morning
as the girl slowly yawned
and they all decided together
why go to work today?
I have a few questions about this one...Are those several words throughtout the piece suppposed to be crammed together? It was a bit distracting from the content. I also think that there are several too frank phrases ie-"kept this way by". It was a little jumbled and unclear, but don't be discouraged. Your work is very good.
Nice. I think i only understand what i want to from poetry so this is my view. Wouldn't it be great if night lasted forever, if you were so spiritually connected with the stars and the moon and the skies that ur will was theirs n theirs urs. this poem feels magical. however i wish on line 9, the world you are reffering to is not all other people but her world that saw this new morning. In that case line 11, "and they all decided" refers to the black sky, the stars outside hanging, the unnatural wind and her. The stars, the night, the moon and she dont wanna go to work and do what they usually do everyday and kill the magical moment. Maybe cuz im unclear about the last line "why go to work today?" is the morning so beautiful she wants to do something different for the rest of the day, or like i feel is it because she doesn't want to go to work so she can go back to sleep. Your poem is occupying a lot of mindspace so i guess i really connected to this one. the imagery created by line 6 and 7 was good. From the warm cozy bed to the cool and fresh, can almost feel it. I really enjoyed this. Good work
