View From The Promenade

The speeding cars make me dizzy,
So I clutch the iron rails
That separate me from the highway below
And concentrate 
On the skyline along the Promenade
To reinstate equilibrium.
Sky and water supporting vertically.

Offering perfect balance,
The horizontal bar stretches on and on.

Imagine it gone.
I think then that we
Would not walk upright,
But stumble, then crawl
Upon this stroller's path.

    Bev. I love the poem! The avatar is an intruder! Capture him with your pen! Punish him with your prose! Erase him with your excellence! You are poetry! Luv, chuck

    Dear Mr. Avatar, Someone sent me two disturbing Soupmails. You seem to get around. Would you by any chance know who did that?

    If you are a legitimate poet, please attach your name to your avatar. If you are not, please leave my site. I've already alerted PoetrySoup as to your presence. I'm sure that an unidentified avatar is not appreciated or condoned here on PoetrySoup! If you don't believe me, just view the reminder directly beneath my avatar at the top of the page. Thank you.
