Blitz Poem~~The different realities within life and the world.
Fountain of Youth
Fountain of Spring
Spring of blooms
Spring of Storms
Storms are powerful
Storms are dangerous
Dangerous wildfires
Dangerous wildlife
Wildlife being born
Wildlife roars
Roars to the heavens
Roars like a kitten
Kittens are cuddly
Kittens love
Love hurts
Love heals
Heals open wounds
Heals broken hearts
Hearts racing
Hearts embracing
Embracing life
Embracing my wife
Wife is my warmth
Wife is my soul
Soul of nature
Soul of songbirds
Songbirds singing
Songbirds bathing
Bathing in the sun
Bathing babies
Babies being born
Babies cry
Cry of humanity
Cry for change
Change of weather
Change of mind
Mind is powerful
Mind is creative
Creative images
Creative art
Art is nature
Art is beauty
Beauty is all around
Beauty breathes
Breathes in air
Breathes in life
Life struggles now
Life will end


From the Author:

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.
