Poetry,  Writing

Remember Polaroids?

So I woke up this morning after having had a rather sad dream about my mom and Christmas, and this was what kept playing through my head once I was alert enough to become cognizant of the words.


P.S. Make sure to check out my post over at Twisted Writers today. I wrote the beginning of a new story!



By Jesi Scott


How I miss the sweetness of those days,

The summer waves,

And the promises of what could have been

When we

Were filled with possibility.

If only we’d known then.


But came the autumn chill.

There was a way, but we had no will,

Now all is still, and we’re stranded on the shore.

As winter winds begin to blow

And summer’s but a fading photo,

A lost memo, our final encore.



Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
