Acceptance

A forest green,
A hammock slung,
Obtuse release.
Acceptance
A billowed sail,
A blind held scale,
Peace.
Approval,
A giant step,
A planted seed,
Gentle rain.
Assent.
Ratification,
Negotiated time,
A rainbows walk,
Consent.

A very unique list of peaceful phrases, that just make me want to *sigh* at the end...Quite creative sir.  I tried to do something like this not too long ago, but it really flopped!  Needless to say, I wadded it up, and in the can it went.     Yours turned out nicely though.

 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

I don't know what to say... Life is tough Sy, but your better. Nice work.

 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name. (Michelle A. Bartley)

This is very unusual.  Beautiful.  I'm especially drawn to the line "A blind held scale", because if the one holding the scale could not see it, there could be no judging.  Acceptance.  Lovely imagery.  Lovely poem.
