Southern Door Senior Poetry: Brock Aune

The Peninsula Pulse has dedicated a page in each issue from April 24 to May 22 for the students of each Door County high school. This week we feature the work of Southern Door student writers.


by Brock Aune, Senior

We wake up each morning uncertain of

the day’s purpose, repeating yesterday’s 

routine as though each day is meaningless.

But these uneventful days are defined

by small, yet impactful, moments of life. 

These overlooked moments and memories

are the ones we long for later in life, 

but are the times that will never return. 

The present is so precious and timeless,

and must never be taken for granted.
