for those days when we need a break
The sound of tyres
tearing through puddles of water in the streets.
Silver droplets falling from the sky unto my glasses,
creating a checkerboard of steam and dots.
The smell of musty air
thick and heavy like walking through water.
The taste of wet grass sticks to my tongue
as I breathe in the morning breeze.
My foot slips as I step on broken, wet leaves,
trampled upon by hurried feet rushing to catch up to the sun.
I was told to engage my five senses whenever I am having an anxiety attack. I wrote this poem one rainy morning when I went for a walk to clear my head.
Now it’s your turn. Whenever you feel like you might need a break, look around and use your five senses to notice your surroundings. Write a poem or a paragraph or any piece about it in response to this poem. The theme is 5 Senses. Don’t forget to link this piece and the author in your response.
Hope this helps you as much as it helped me.
