    Afternoon Musings

    fair and away
    sweet vision
    fair and away

    tangled once…twice…thrice for fun
    twine constricting full viewed palm
    open, trusting, without doubt

    slashed by inconvenience,
    truth maligned – set back yet unbroken
    wearied, sullen, fear-frozen
    doggedly unfounded yet fluttering

    tattered fragments
    hoisted in defiance
    one thread bare remaining

    hanging, hoping, dreaming
    into future possibility

    prophecy fulfilled and fulfilling
    in vision-sweetest desire

    This one requires thought and multiple reads, RLW! It begins with hope, encounters difficulty well-endured, and ends with fulfillment, so it is an uplifting piece and all completely in the mind! Its very musical and shows care and craft in its creation. Love this, RLW!

      Thank you MHenry - indeed, it speaks of bumps on the road, but hope in the journey!

    I love the rhythm of this poem.

    It suits the subject matter.

    Eloquent work, poet!

      Thank you DWAYNE. I'm usually more comfortable with strict rhyme, but sometimes the words come to me in free verse, and I'm learning to like that too. MHenry predicted, months ago, that once I tried it, I'd come to like it. I believe his prediction was spot on!
