Spontaneous or Not

Spread the love

Voka-New-York-Street

Precious few those fleeting moments;
When we wish to fly or swim the ocean.
When part of conversations rare;
Or when the heart is free of care.
Trace hopes and dreams upon the sand;
Without fear of where we fall or stand.
Cause nothing ever goes as planned.
Let passion reign your passing thoughts;
Are you spontaneous – or are you not

Forever bound with logic – reason
Impetuous tends to change like season.
Refer to them as freedom’s compass;
Desire, feeling, whim, impulse.
Addiction to thrill is what I’ve got;
Are you spontaneous – or are you not

    O! Innocent youth loved the spontaneous but in recent years I’ve hesitated except on paper. Age and fragile bones led me to what is often a kinder and more forgiving way, but ideally?? I’m with the spontaneous and free. Love your elegant awareness of spontaneity’s rareness.

      Hello James,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it πŸ™‚
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

      PS: You’re welcome πŸ™‚

    This is yummy, Sanaa. I love the invitation to live in the moment, to dance with life even when we don’t quite know the tune, to live like we are alive from head to toe and we aren’t sure just for how long it will last! β™₯

  3. Michael says:

    Lovely writing, Sanaa. It is true the moments when the heart feels wholly free can be precious and rare. I think we can be spontaneous in more ways then one… There’s an outward spontaneity that’s about dropping what binds us and setting off for an adventure, and there’s an inner spontaneity that’s about diving into what calls to us… And that’s a whole ‘nother type of adventure!

    Peace
    Michael

    What a wonderful piece and such a perfect picture to accompany – very unique..as I read I heard underneath the difference between spontaneity and wreckless press…an important and wise distinction πŸ™‚

    I’m still working on my poem for this. I think sometimes, spontaneity can be as dull and burdensome as predictability. I try for a balance, expecially as I have gotten older. I was spontaneous, probably too often, in my youth. Now it is a treat. Good write here and good prompt.

  6. Shawna says:

    I love this section:

    “Trace hopes and dreams upon the sand;
    Without fear of where we fall or stand.
    Cause nothing ever goes as planned.
    Let passion reign”

    … And your “dare you to come with me” ending. Great work, girl.

  7. Alexa T says:

    “Without fear of where we fall or stand.
    Cause nothing ever goes as planned.
    Let passion reign your passing thoughts;
    Are you spontaneous – or are you not…” Good question!!!

    I love this poem and it is always a pleasure to read your lyrics.
    Have a sunny Monday and a great start in the new week!

    I love those spontaneous moments, but you know, like any med it depends in what amount we have them… ~ too much..- and we can lose ourselves forever, become distracted from life; logical, controlling – and we’d get bored, not inspired….so, balance is the key πŸ™‚

  9. Laura Hegfield says:

    There was a time when spontaneity came easy, now there must be some planning involved for many things due to physical disability… and yet, there are still moments, days when I too can follow my heart and let thinking mind become the background. Those are blessed times indeed. I loved your poem!
