Bite size pieces of imagination
Dripping down the chin of mind
Embracing this abysmal creation
Oh, wondrous reinforcing time

Persistent moments strolling by
Feedback of a storm that branched
Clear fresh visions of summertime
Crunched thru darkness with friendly hands

Diluting a quiet depth that once was I

Oh savor the premise of tradition
Wrapped around your golden ears
Shedding a soulful skyís ambition
Into the depths of overnight tears

That embraced and kept us close in memory
Gathering songs which roughens hands
But keeps afloat a sea of treasury
With lectures that swallowed all our plans

Weaving humanityís persuasive haiku
Like a witch pruning a tutorís application
Some tropical bayou in humid July
Where crocs lay still with sturdy fixation

To devour this endless mountain of stone
but I smile a mile of fearless bare feet
Snuggling close to this frontier called home
for we will always walk this endless beach

"To devour this endless mountain of stone
but I smile a mile of fearless bare feet
Snuggling close to this frontier called home
for we will always walk this endless beach"


First off I love your rhyming pattern. But overshadowing even that this poem takes on the past in a soulful, wonderful belief concerning what may, or may not have happened. Enjoyable reading to be sure!

I am happy you settled back home for whatever was to come.

JerryPat, thank you for reading and understanding....for many years now, I've felt there is even purpose in all the bad that happens to us, and some bad is not always by choice....but it happens just the same, from which we learn and walk on into tomorrow's a bit broken perhaps, but, stronger and hopefully wiser.

So many poems within this poem, wonderfully crafted with great skill and intuition. I'm especially fond of this one I quoted LeeJ.

You'll get no 'protests' out of me...only accolades.

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...

Always warms  that special place inside, when I read you my friend - If I could only find the way to express myself as do you . . .

Ah well, you make it sound so much better than I could anyway . . .

Always enjoy you . . .

LeeJ.,
   Great to read you again! You had some killer lines in this.  You hooked me with your first two, and I loved the fearless bare feet line.  You have always been a rocketeer of imagery, shooting it so quickly, it spirals around me.

        Enjoyed,
