THE backup

Poetry Jam


BACKUP


Now
Back up the files
Store the information
Don t' loose anything
Save a copy



Down the hill
Back up the next
Savor the moment
Forget the work
Share a memory

Down with the backup
Save the downhill
Don't loose the moment
Store a memory



FLIP is a FLOP

Store a memory
Don't loose a moment
Save the downhill
Down with the backup
Share a memory
Forget the work
Saver a moment
Back up the next
Down the hill
Save a copy
Don't loose anything
Store the information
Back up the files
Now

Back Up

Breath with me
Keep moving
in ….understanding
the upward direction
Stop...at nothing
try again to be uplifting
save a smile...
share a copy...fax the answer...save your work
No blame for loss and no backup
God has my back
the ride is as it should be
not problem free
just
live in good hands
not planned
enjoy the ride
down and …
back up


FLIP UP

Back up
down and...

enjoy the ride
not planned
live in good hands
just
not problem free
the ride as it should be

God has my back
No blame for loss and no backup
share a copy...fax the answer....save your work
save a smile

Try again to be uplifting
stop...at nothing
the upward direction
in....understanding
keep moving

breath with me

  1. You have really been playing with the idea of backward poetry, haven't you? I enjoyed the shifts in meanings from one poem to the next.

  2. I enjoyed the pictures and the way you worked with the backward concept. I liked the last stanza especially & the idea of traveling in an upward direction, and keeping moving on!

    1. Life may be up and down but both ways and backwards from the plan can be just perfect in the long run
