Day 365 (Finally!)

January 18, 2011 Leave a comment

I origially wrote this one for day 350, but it was too perfect for today so I decided to hold onto it. It was initially inspired by the fact that I was getting very tired of all of the holiday reruns. Well, that’s it for Stanza 365, but watch this space (the blog, not this exact post lol) for information about Stanza 365 The Book … coming soon.

Is that all you’ve got?
I’ve heard it all before
and I’ve started to ignore
your pointless repetition,
I just can’t take anymore.
You’ve run out of surprises,
there’s no reason to extend
this distressed association.
I believe we’ve reached the end.

Day 364

The idea for this one came from the fact that it’s the last piece that I have to write for Stanza 365 (I wrote day 365 back on Day 350).

Only one way to find out
Unless you take the chance
there’s no way you’ll ever know
how much you have to offer
or just how far you can go.
It may seem to be impossible
if you’ve never tried,
but the mountain doesn’t look so high
viewed from the other side.

Day 363

This one was inspired by a haiku that I found with StumbleUpon.

Perpetual Motion
I’m just getting started,
this isn’t the end,
or, at the very least,
that’s what I intend.
Even though things may not
go according to plan,
I want to keep going
as long as I can.

Day 362

Against my better judgment I seem to have become addicted to playing Cityville on Facebook, which gave me the idea for this one.

I shouldn’t be doing this
there’s so much that I want to do,
so many grand designs,
but I can’t seem to stop myself
from wasting too much time.
No matter what my plans may be,
I’m driven by distractions
to spend what little time I have
on meaningless attractions.

Day 361

This one was inspired by something that was said during a sponsor read for MailRoute during a recent episode of Tech News Today.

I’ve been through all of this before
and it’s not worth it anymore.
I’ve seen enough, I’ve got to quit.
I’m just not putting up with it.
I’ve got to start thinking long-range
and stop expecting you to change.
There isn’t any other way,
the time has come to walk away.

Day 360

I was getting very tired when I wrote this one.

Consciousness slipping away.
I’ve tried, but I can’t seem to stay
awake another minute longer.
The need to sleep is growing stronger,
but there’s much more that I need to do
before the day is finally through.
I know that it may be unwise,
but maybe I’ll just rest my eyes.

Day 359

Only 5 more to go (I’ve already written Day 365) and that gave me the idea for the beginning of this one.

Is that all?
So close, but still
not quite there yet
and with each step closer
that I get
it becomes more of
a reality,
but just not what I
thought it would be.

A double rainbow reference on Twitter gave me the idea for line 3.

What you want to see
It may seem obvious enough
when taken at face value,
but what does it really mean
upon further review?
When you look between the lines,
what intentions will you find
and just how many of them
exist only in your mind?

Day 357

I moved my site to a new host and it took me a while to figure out their interface, which gave me the initial idea for this one.

A little lost
Yet another misstep
has taken me off track
and I’m not really sure
how to find my way back.
I’ve got to get my bearings,
figure out what’s going on
and with any luck I won’t find
that I’m simply too far gone.

Day 356

The beginning of this one was inspired by/borrowed from the song ‘Where do we go from here?‘ from the Buffy The Vampire Slayer episode ‘Once More With Feeling‘.

Just Wandering
Where do I go from here?
The answer isn’t clear,
but I’ve got to go
and I don’t know
how I will persevere.
I’ll just have to keep moving
and try to find my way.
Hopefully my destination
won’t be too far away.
