A Long Stretch for d’Verse, (almost)

Published November 9, 2017 by Nan Mykel

Sorry, I’m stumped again. I think I’m locked into secure and don’t know how to get out.

 

A LONG STRETCH

The clear melody of birdsong,

a cool, soothing breeze off the lake,

the kitten’s purring, a warm hug.

The poet’s palette offers endless

choices to embrace and call

forth our gentle, loving nature,

for which the poet is revered.

We cannot argue, this is true.

 

From the same palette, also true:

a rancid stink of depredation

spreads like contagious lava

burning bridges, brutalizing

the senses, and overwhelming

love. How long can both truths endure?

It’s a long stretch between the two.

Or is there a total disconnect?
