I’m Not Supposed to Be Here

Wake up where I don’t belong
Scatter me into metal ruin
and still I grow
in a place where no one thought I would
in a place where I never thought I could…
Against convention
His own invention…
My promise persists
until I am revealed.
I’m not supposed to be here,
but now that I am,
aren’t I beautiful?

Last night Ajaytao said he would be honored if I chose a picture from his blog to write a poem about. I didn’t think I could since I have never used a prompt that did not originate from inside me. But, I adore his work and thought I would give it a try. I hope I did you proud, Ajaytao! Visit his awe-inspiring site, http://ajaytao2010.wordpress.com/
He makes my day with each of his posts. So, in other words, he makes my day several times a day! 🙂

This picture was taken from Ajaytao’s site to accompany poem. It belongs to him.

  1. Love it! It’s so hard to write a poem to accompany a picture! I always do it the other way around, so I really think you did great! And it’s also very lovely. 🙂

  2. thank you so much
