Free Verse Fever

FREE VERSE FEVER

I see you every morning
skipping on your way to work,
a mundane task for anyone
but not you, it being your release
from your world of simplicity
and retardation.
I’ve often wondered what
goes through your mind, as
you search for the faces that
fit the scurrying movements
of your work mates, as they
dart about like misty forms
before your fragile eyes, your
unenviable task of groping for
your blue dot, it being the
prominent feature on your
clock card. It is easy to feel pity 
for you, but not I, it is envy of 
your simple ways, in this, an ever
increasing pressurised world,
because you’re always the same,
no matter what equations these
precarious days throw at us all. 
Mathew, your gift is unique, 
If one only had the time to ponder.

Astounded.

    Hello Harry … your verse is a classic way of how a poets mind works. Poets observe and retain, then have the ability to write it as an artist paints a picture - well done Harry - Lindsay

    It appears that your eyes and your heart are both wide open. How else could you have written such perceptive words on another human being. This is a sign of an amazing writer, as for comparing free verse, yours touched my soul. I make no comparison, we each have our own ways of reaching others, Love to you, dear poet. always, Vie. aka mystic aka pixie,

    You captured this unique person in your words brilliantly, Harry: It is easy to feel pity for you, but not I, it is envy of your simple ways, in this, an ever increasing pressurised world,because you’re always the same, no matter what equations these precarious days throw at the world.... Impressive vocabulary.
