Students - Do you ever just stare at a thing and let your mind wander? I do this with clocks sometimes. And if you stare at clocks (or anything) long enough, you come to notice some differences in the way they look, sound, and make you feel.
This wasn't planned, but looking the poem now, I realize that it contrasts two different things. The first stanza is about one clock, the second about another, and the third stanza brings both together. This is something I might try again, finding two like-yet-unlike things and writing a three stanza contrast poem about them.
For anyone who followed "Free Verse Week", you'll laugh to know that I was scared to write in rhyme again!
