Through the Mist of Words

The eye wanders, warily, unfocused Troubadours, lost, seeking poetic pen Magical wand finding no hocus pocus Minstrel, languishing, no verses to lend Barbs squandered, set aside as precocious Tragic? …No common, now take a new spin Through the mist of appreciated rhymes Poetic stanzas now dare to cross lines © Debra Squyres ( 8-20-14) Written for: Nette’s “Through the Mist” members contest Using the form “ottava rima” for the first time.

When nothing comes to mind. And all that you can find. Is spilling ink of what you think. Communing with mankind. We take a trip into unknown. In hopes we find that we have grown. Into a realm worth a rewriting. Of love expressing our requiting. Merry Christmas Debra. Wishing you God's peace in the coming year. Peace. :)

The essence of poetic prose, to not know where the meaning goes. A vanquished thought beyond recall. Sometimes protects you from a fall. Epitomizing at it's best. Please understand it's not in jest. Peace. :)
