Poem: Quatrains – “Flow Through Life, Hurts”


Thanks to the Daily Post for the word prompt flow.

——

The ebb and flow of life passing,

Each day new dreams aspiring,

Whimsical thoughts that seem,

Errant from the eye soft gleams.

——

I’ll get through this, though I feel stuck,

Each day, a rough ride but with luck,

Overcome the rising flow,

Water rising, as life firmly goes.

—–

Dreamt that I could be so free, real —

Real things are worn, wrapped with feeling,

Not a problem being worn, forlorne;

Life isn’t perfect, sometimes you’re torn.

—–

Mixing batter in the bowl, make —

Cake for whom can eat what I bake.

Nothing I make with two hands, tastes —

Worthy as freedom to be rates.

—–

Tired, worn, a lark with empty hurt,

Moments that flow by life, the worst.

Tomorrow the sun will rise, burst —

Bring better times, make it through first.

    I’ll get through this, though I feel stuck, . . .

    The photograph readies us for motion and the challenges; this line captures that in verse. Then these words express, I think, a truth in life: “Real things are worn, wrapped with feeling.” Makes me think of a stuffed animal as a metaphor–you know, the real kind that’s kept over time. Good to have, but what happens next? And the last line is, sometimes sadly, all too true: “. . . better times, make it through first.” Sometimes that’s the best approach we’ve got. Endure until things are good.

    Great crafting about challenging barriers.

      Thanks Christopher. You are very right in your reading of this poem. Real things are worn and stuffed animals are exactly right. I was thinking of the story “The Velveteen Rabbit,” Thanks for you comments. 🙂
