Unknown Zephyr (The Covid Series)

Unknown Zephyr (The Covid Series)

A Poem by Joshua777
"

Written July 28, 2020 | The slow degradation after reaching new heights

"

Crisp at the start,

Sharp as an icicle,

Implementing new techniques,

To try and stay alive.

 

The breeze came to lift me off the ground,

A new freedom to numb the incoming changes,

The cool air never felt better,

I smiled.

 

That same smile grew less and less,

That same breeze grew less and less,

That same icy fortitude shrunk, more and more,

My will to stay afloat shrunk, more and more.

 

The air grew warm,

My will soft,

The goals melted,

The breeze no more.

I think those colors have quite simulate tone and shade. Maybe it will be work better if you try more lighter and after more darker tones. Otherwise good idea.

Well we are living in cycles of our nature. Only what we can do to act according to current situation and environment . I feel like this poem is about evolution of decline.

The ever changing mystery of a thing, that we cannot wrap our mind around and or our grasp. It swoops in shakes us up then leaves us bewildered and at times empty.

I felt the cool zephyr reading this, friend. I hope you can realize that victory again soon.. I think the colours used compliment the poem well, with the way they depict the palpability of it. Nice imagery used. :)

I have not realized I could change colors and add images, so this is my first attempt at incorporating such methods. The colors used should compliment the poem though, but let me know if you see colors often or how effective you think it is?
