This is my day four entry in the Intro to Poetry course. The lesson is to use the poetic device of simile to explore the topic of Journey.  Njoy!


My life journey is as curled as the hair on my head!

At moments, it resembles a corkscrew,

closely wound in a circular motion.

Then it aims straight, like a rocket, towards the heavens.

Each strand defines its purpose and direction.

It follows the shape of my head.

It goes around the circumference, and up over the crown.

I no longer control my journey.

I enjoy the crazy ride.
