Poetry Train Monday - 171 - Further In and Around the Corner



This poem was written during the 3:15 Experiment in August.






















Further In and Around the Corner

Maybe not right now
But soon
Maybe not on my tongue
But I can taste it

Perhaps the vision is too
Misty to grasp in my hands
Perhaps the words are muffled
Drawing me further in and around the corner

Maybe the climb is still steep
But at least I have those mountaineering clips
Perhaps I run out of day before I run out of done
This journey becomes more soothing, revealings its own joys, its own insights

'Run out of day before I run out of done'- that's the story of my life, lol! This is a seriously great poem.I'm going to have to try the 3:15 experiment someday.
