Chalk and Cheese

During the poetry challenge I entered in April, I particularly enjoyed composing the list poem in which we were to describe ourselves in terms of the contradictions which live within us. It was great fun to unearth the contrasting parts of myself, so much so that I decided to write a second version included below. Who knows, perhaps further instalments might even follow?!

Identity Parade continued

I am a peace keeper

And a rule breaker

A team player

And a drama queen

A listener

And a law unto myself

I am the grey areas

And purple power

The moonlight

And the dew of dawn

I am a lake at sunset

And a rugged beach

A rainbow

And a stormy sky

A blueberry smoothie

And salt and vinegar crisps

Full of contradictions

And flowing with life
