Free Verse

Free verse eludes, escapes I cannot rein it in Not free at all, in fact Unarticulated words held prisoner by rigid structures in my mind Too much is none at all, it seems A canvas blank remains just that For lack of numbers, lines, and colors, preselected images do not appear To draw outside the lines where none exist a daunting task, indeed And yet I see a little rise just over there and wonder what’s around the bend and whether I should tease it out a bit or just leave an ellipsis so that you can wonder too immersed but also free
