I Wrote a Thing With Line Breaks (a.k.a. A Poem)!

Many of you probably already know, but for those who don’t, I am a Creative Writing major in addition to an Archaeology major.  While my journal was perhaps not the artistic masterpiece I had somewhat hoped it would be and neither was the trip particularly suited for awe-inspiring, must-make-this-into-a-poem moments, I did managed to write one poem during my time in British Columbia.  With very minimal editing, I present the ever-so-creatively-titled “Slocan Narrows, British Columbia”:

Dappled Skies.  Dappled
trees.  Dappled earth.
Light plays hide &
seek behind tree
branches while calico
soil covers ancient
treasures.  We glimpse
patches of past lives,
shedding mottled
light on long-buried
secrets.  Finding
ourselves as ephemeral
as sunlight.
