20 minutes

Post by Colm Roe » Thu Jan 14, 2021 3:01 am

Wound for the last time,
his metronome still sways
in regular pulses. 

The urgency and violence
that often pounded life, 
​​​​like the forging
of great, steel spikes
anchoring him to this place,
no longer required.

A specimen
nailed to a board.

No long journey now, just
enough to park
exit the car and leave.

 
His passengers
watch the falls, cling
to every rise.

Soon to compromise,
and settle
for risen.

Message loud and clear.

I took the liberty of unpinning the topic.

Thanks Tracy.
Still coming to terms with a new tablet I received for Christmas!

A new tablet! -- do you have to re-load stuff, and find your password master list?

No, Google is good that way.
​​My problem is having to edit the format. When I post a poem it never appears the way I posted it...the lines get jumbled up  :roll:
