SPONTANEITY...YES OR NO?



This was written for colleague Sanaa Rizvi's 
PROMPT NIGHTS:

YES:
Spontaneity,
I applaud you so
Because naturally
you went with the flow
Unplanned
were the words you spoke
So grand
they made me float
so here I am
for you to hold.

NO:
Spontaneity,
you irk me my dear
Your impulsivity
I do very fear
Impetuous
were the words you sneered
So anxious
I want you out of here
so I can best
avoid your behavior.

  2. Hahaha! Depends on who's doing the slinging, doesn't it? I love the irony that the second seems the more spontaneous.

  6. I love this two-sided view, for it sings reality into life. In some cases, we do "float" into spontaneity's embrace, but other times... well, those of use without a plan can get really upset at the reality of the situation.

  8. I like how you use the second person--making characters out of them.

  9. I would like to be more spontaneous but not much. Just a tiny tweak.
    Love the two perspectives you present.

  10. I don't think being spontaneous everytime works, but it is needed at times. :) I liked the two takes!
