I am definitely not a poet, but I awhile back I was compelled to write this random poem about “Retreat From The Crowd”.
When they want a steak,
I crave chocolate cake.
When they wear jeans,
I am skirted by all means.
When they flirt all day,
I like sit alone by the bay.
When they back each other up,
I like to focus more on my cup.
When they banter all night,
I read by the solitary light.
When they drive down the road,
I walk alone to my abode.
When they dye their hair blonde,
I keep mine black of which I am fond.
When they go to the Colorado River,
I dream of Hawaii and shiver.
When they drink and socialize,
I prefer nature to harmonize.
When they go to the latest action movie,
I take home a book and read aptly.
When they dance all around,
I like to sit alone on the ground.
Retreating from the crowd,
Especially when it is very loud.
The picture above is one I drew of a Hawaiian inspired sunset back in 2007.
