Flat Surfaces

                                 Flat Surfaces

                                 Flat surfaces
                                 The scourge
                                From nowhere 
                                Things emerge
                                Things you say 
                             You’ve never seen
                           They’ve always been
                                   Till the eye
                             Becomes perturbed
                                   At the sight
                                  And the dust
                                 And you might 
                                 Yes, you must
                                   Brush it off
                                 Swipe it clear
                                    Ready for 
                               More to appear

    Such thought provoking words! Dust is always such a mysterious thing, how you don't know it's existence until there's a thick coat of it on our counter-tops. You put a lot of thought into this metaphor... very cool!

    ooo., Richard, i like this free-verse poem... The flat surface of life is not as easy to dust or swipe clear. Love the poem...Linda

    You've taken this from the negative side, Richard....very well written, but flat surfaces can also bring joy of words of affirmation.
