B- Backwards Day





           Slowly
             he walks
              backwards
         up the Mountain,
             blinded to rocks
                             and dips
                        along the way.

   He strolls with a pace of notice
         glancing at the smallest
                             of difference.
    The new amongst the familiar
        the old nearly forgotten
                It had been too long
     since he had a backwards day.

Love it! I should give that a try - except my near blindness, bum knee and walking stick would make it a tricky enterprise:)

Hi River, clicking over from A to Z. What a Beautiful poem. I love the idea of walking backwards, doing something different and seeing the world through new eyes.

Maybe I'll have a backwards day tomorrow. :)

that rebel, Olivia

Novel idea. I think I'll give it a try...very carefully.
