2014 APRIL PAD CHALLENGE DAY 29: Relative Realities (Poem)

Relative Realities

A single snowflake,
two days before May,
whisked through the air
and disappeared.
On a quantum level, I thought,
It must be snowing elsewhere
in the multiverse.
This solitary frozen blink
slipped through
a split-second portal,
interdimensionally transported
to float itself undone.
As such,
The how’s and why’s
don’t matter much.
Its life and death
were witnessed here.
Magically surreal,
yet it made me feel
graciously alive
and wistfully…

  1. What a great poem, and so different too!!

    I was wondering if I could publish this brilliant poem in the next issue of a free online literary magazine of mine?

    It’s a new website and only has three issues published at the moment, but it’s gathering new readers and email followers every week and doing well on WordPress now. It’s free for anyone to read and the aim is primarily to help promote writers on websites and blogs from all over the internet. https://thewritinggarden.wordpress.com/

    The copyright remains with the writer and I always include a link back to where the work was originally published and also any other social media links you’d like me to include (please let me know which ones – if you have any).

    If you would be interested in allowing me to publish your work please check out the magazine and let me know. But if you’d rather not, don’t hesitate to say no, I really won’t mind.

    P.S. I found you on Twitter! 🙂

    1. YES!! Thank you, so very much! Do you have a Twitter account? I run @thewritelist where I list writerly information such as prompts and submissions, etc. I would love to add you! The feed is on this blogs home page, as well. I tried to sign up for your email list, but am not sure it worked. It didn’t ask for my email address, but said I was signed up. Looking forward to further perusing the issues you have up!

      I have social accounts all over the place, but am really only active here and Twitter. @Lindy_TM & @thewritelist

      You made me smile, today – Thanks, again!

      1. That will be great Lindy! 🙂 And so glad you found both my Twitter pages too – good to connect with you there!

        Sorry about the late reply. I’m in the middle of going round to ask for work I’ve bookmarked as a possible choice and I end up having a lot of conversations in many directions until it’s all arranged for the next issue – enjoyable, but quite time consuming to get it all done!

        I’m not sure why it would have said you were signed up without putting in an email address. Maybe if you had clicked the WordPress button first it got confused? There is a tick box I think, to agree to have emails as well if you click the main button on the blog. I followed someone a while back on WordPress with the usual follow button at the top of the screen and it automatically signed me up for emails too, which I didn’t want and didn’t select as well as the WordPress follow. So maybe there’s some glitches at the moment – there usually is at some point!

        Okay, I shall add your two Twitter pages into your links, if you are happy with that? The next issue will be completed by early July, so I’ll get back to you with a link when it’s published. Thanks for the follows! You may see it first before I get back to you, but it’s just something I do as a rule for everyone, to make sure all the writers have seen it.

        So thanks very much for allowing me to use your poetry – looking forward to it! 🙂

        1. Thank you! It may be a glitch with mt iPad – I just had a similar issue, elsewhere. I will sign up on the desktop, in the morning.

          Yes, the twitter accounts are fine. I look forward to it and reading the next issue!

          Let me know if I can help you on The Write List. We love Lit Journals! 🙂

  2. Just to let you know Lindy your poetry is published in The Writing Garden! Please do have a read to double check I’ve not made any errors. Should be okay, but just in case. Thank you so much for allowing me to publish your poetry! 🙂
