Ambiguous statements
Concealed in verse.
Revealed at last
Or is it at first?
Showing true meaning
To those who would see.
In plain sight of all
Consistently .

A game is a-foot
Craig has the tools .
Referring to poets as
Oft' times the fools .
Shall we play a few times
To see where it leads ?
I expect I'll be bested
Continually .

Abusing this format
Could be in bad taste .
Reaching for meanings
Obscured by such waste .
Still I am tempted
To tackle this task .
In your number how many
Care to play were they asked ?

Severed moorings
Hold no sway .
Away , cast off , be free .
Let others in safe harbours stay
Leave shore to ply the seas .
Watchful of the shoals close in
Each vessel sounding depth .
Bold manuevers
Early on , make for certain death .
Glorious sights await our craft
Islands fine as jewels
Never a thought we may all be daft
( could these be ships of fools ? )

I see you have managed to add Acrostic poetry to your list of achievements, and a very fine example this is.
Well done ( again ).

Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

Praise is as welcome , as your critiques ,
what matters most , is that someone will speak . Thanks for the input , Craig & Nan
