One Single Impression - Place


is where i am
going beyond this
place and time
again moving
into the past
while the future
flops around
like a fish gill
gulping for air
grasping
for a foothold
into being


Write a poem on this week’s theme.





Merry Meet and Blessed Be

  4. Beautifully original - the fish metaphor made me smile, but it's true, future does often seem to flop around just so.

  6. I love that flopping future - because it so often feels just like that!

    I loved this, Nessa!

  7. Good one, Nessa! And no, we can never guarantee the future will be good.

    But we can plan on it. The future will come no matter what it will be.

  8. Place is, or can be, dynamic. This is wonderful.
