It Reigns

Free fluidity
Through which falls
All Manna of life;
Sounds and squalls
Sharp and circling
Ferocious and wanting
Delicate handling,
Gentle smoothing,
Quiet attempting
At elusive understanding.


I got brave enough!
This is inspired by this weeks prompt Chaos over at One Single Impression

"Elusive Understanding" - I loved the way you interpreted the prompt this week.. Wonderful way of portraying the efforts, that gives an impression of a distinct chaotic layer..

Thank you Andy, Dark Lord and Sweetest in the Gale!

I'm grabbing the bits of quiet time I have in the midst of the chaos to explore the other poems..it's been a really lovely way to discover writing.

a very nice juxtaposition of descriptors -- ferocious and delicate both -- very evocative, chaotic.

Difficult to think straight at times, and you captured it well.

SisterJulia said...

My home is perfect inspiration!

I've been wandering around your blog of wonderful treasures...I've never come across writing quite like yours before.

You shattered chaos’ spell with persistence and finesse. Hurray! Is chaos a toddler?
