SOCs: Interwoven

Life is interwoven

With last year and this

With friends newly found

And those we miss

Life is intertwined

With memories of prior days

With dating, marriage, divorce

And living separate ways

Life is interlaced

With community and work

With faith and social gatherings

And those times that irk

Life is intermittent

With sadness and joy

With richness, then poor

And brevity or a smile of coy

Life is invention

With smart phones and such

With new and crazy ideas

And the future that enriches much

Life is interactive

With humans face-to-face

With blogging and tweeting

And love to the human race

Life is interchanged

With smiles and nod of head

With handshakes and heartbreaks

And souls being fed

Life is an interlude

To share this poem with you

With coffee in hand

And Saturday best wishes anew

This poem of interwoven life is being brought to you by Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday or SOCs. Click HERE to read other SOCs posts of the day and consider joining in after reading the rules. The main rule to remember is, “Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.” Not an easy task for anal perfectionists like myself, but who said life has to be easy? Just make it fun!

    I like that! It’s a perfect poem to help this weekend bring quiet relief from a hectic week. Nicely done on the #SoCS prompt.

    I particularly like:
    Life is interactive

    With humans face-to-face

    With blogging and tweeting

    And love to the human race

      Thanks Dan. I was going to write something last night, but I was so burned out from the week, I could only sit on the couch and watch TV. Two cups of coffee and sleep did a world of good. I may keep up with the Saturday morning poetry as it seems easier than a story when I’m not able to edit ten times over.

      • bikerchick57 says:

        Yes, it does. I have to be careful of the words I choose to rhyme. Sometimes options can be limited. I may have to work on my non-rhyming, free-form poetry in the future.

      Thanks Cheryl! I need to get up soon and enjoy this incredible life. It’s not the warmest today, but blue skies and sun are beckoning!

        Do enjoy the day! We have a bit of chill today but also blue skies. I hope to get out later but have a work art project I must complete first. Happy Saturday!

  2. Excellent. I had brain numbness to day and the inter- part cause me to do a “Whaaaa?” and want to sleep. You rose to the occasion!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Thank you, Katie! Yeah, I know the brain numbness thing. Luckily, “inter” kept nagging at me and won out.

    That was an excellent use of the prompt! Love it. I read it and feel connected — and balanced. 🙂

    I enjoyed reading this out loud. At first, I didn’t consciously realize it rhymed because it felt so natural. Nice flow!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      JoAnna, I’m glad that the poem felt natural to you. I think it should always be easy to read, whether it rhymes or not. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Joanne Sisco says:

    Wow – you’re good!!
    The 2 stanzas that spoke to me the most were Life is intertwined and Life is interactive. You captured the nuances very well in each short piece. I liked this a lot.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Joanne, I’m humbled by your comments. I’m so glad you liked this. Seriously, had I tried to write this Friday night, when I was brain dead, I’m not sure what you would have read…might have been interesting, huh?

  6. What a lovely poem. I totally enjoyed reading this. Indeed life is interwoven, twined, laced…

    Let me invite you to my blog party going on right now. If you find the time, you are welcome to join the networking. Regards.

      Jacqueline thanks for stopping by to read and leave such lovely comments. I’ll try to check out the blog party later today, if it’s not too late. I have a busy Sunday ahead!
