Writing Activity for poetry club 2

* We were told to people watch to draw inspiration from the outside world*

Public transportation
Source for real world information
introverted Man  across from me shuffles his ipod
His lips move to
Lyrics of an unknown cadence 
Lost in a day dream
Remembering childhood fantasies
He is Battling with Lil Wayne, Eminem or even Drake
Or feeling the guitar sing when he’s playing with the Queen
Just an ordinary man, no one would usually take notice of him
But the crowds recognition, the attention, the admiration of women
This was the life much more suited for him
The Bright pink colour in his cheeks or his laughter rising to the ceiling
Would be much more captivating
Than his dreary grey scowl, hardened from societies disapproval
He looks back across from me
Almost apologetically
Poets weren’t meant to be spies
I looked him straight in the eyes and told him Never apologize
Your dreams are closer to you than you realize
Love yourself first, and that trust will seal your fate

    Interesting thoughts descriptive of a persona of someone that you don't know but feel that you do from his face and actions. Neat write about this topic. Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara

    This man you encountered on public transportation inspired a terrific, insightful write, Laura. As poets, we take our inspiration from the world around us and can't help but be "spies" sometimes. Enjoyed! Love, Carolyn
