  • Irrevocable Strands

    Shall we now become untethered,
    by the, incessant, turning hands?
    Are not our many trials now braided,
    to form these irrevocable strands?

    The earth
    is more than dust for travelling,
    The sky
    is more than clouded air,
    and brotherhood, far surpasses
    the lineage we share.

    And another - the beauty and eloquence of your words - the way you turn a phrase - delectable.

      Comparisons to force people to think. Gentle, thought-provoking until you have us hooked then delivered with a punch. Words of wisdom Dwayne. :-)

        Your stuff is always top drawer, Dwayne. Ideas, language, tone, all wielded and turned out tunefully. You are a jeweller with words.

        Hi, Dwayne, another serious message told poetically in your signature style.

        These words I love...The earth is more than dust for travelling,
        A parenthetical follow phrase forced its way into my mind, my apologies...

        The earth is more than dust for travelling, [it is also a place for us to dump our garbage.]

          Mr. Henry, I think you should take that phrase and run with it!

          I desperately want to see what you come up with.

          I'm not sure I can take it any further, Dwayne - nothing comes to mind at the moment, but I bet you could! Or perhaps, a collaboration?
