Day Fourteen NaPoWriMo, The MOVIE

We’re heading towards the half-way mark both at NaPoWriMo and the AtoZ Challenge. The challenge on Day Fourteen is a fun one: write a poem that takes the form of the opening scene of the movie of your life. Does it open with a car chase? A musical number? A long scene panning across a verdant plain? You’re the director (and also the producer, the actors, the set designer, the cinematographer, and the lowly assistant that buys doughnuts for the crew) – so it’s all up to you!

I didn’t have to think much for this one. Picked up a chapter from my life. Of course, you’ll have to wait for the entire movie to hit the screens. Tentatively titled, The MOVIE

The cameras roll…

On a mean rainy day a pair of feet

run over glassy tracks, stirring

puddles into a vortex

of dance.


Their destination, a crumbling theatre

where plays a percussion over the

roof-top, drowning the muffled

notes of a solitary mic.


Drums beat by rickety panes, a storm-cloud hangs

by the skylight. I shake my flattened hair

and strain my eager ear,

‘Our next participant is…’

they announce.


The title sequence plays

Starring, Yours Truly

  1. If this is going to be the opening scene of the movie, I eagerly await the full version.
    Your words did the perfect job of the best cinematographer and sound record artist Sonia.
