My Poetic Path

my journey…shared in poems, prose and photos

And so it begins.

The fragile cycle of life.

Fleeting.

Tentative.

Glimpsed for one brief measure.

Our history and time.

The transformations that will….

mark our place.

Name, our space.

Let it count.

Let us count.

To leave something better.

Substance, character, memories…

that remain unchanged.

Onward we venture.

Free-flying.

Unstoppable.

To complete our rise to glory.

On silken wings.

PS: For some reason WordPress is not allowing me to keep the spaces for each stanza as this poem was originally written. After three attempts to remove and then re-do the formatting, I gave up. I think it reads quite well without the spaces too.

Hope you enjoy this work. 🙂

  13. Your poem is beautiful. I would like to know if the word prompt ‘transformation’ is for a post to do for this week posted on last Sunday, or is it to be used for a post for next Sunday? Do you allow the whole week to post with a prompt? Thank you for replying. I wrote a poem with the prompt to use for it, but wasn’t sure when to post it. I am over here at: http://jemj47.wordpress.com
