An outlying page

by October 8, 2013 0 comments

Motivated pen
By the incursion of a thought
Beleaguered page it left.
Write, re-write and cut,
Battle to win: a timeless victory
Collecting some hope.
To preserve in words: a life.

Whose momentary escape
Did nurse his feverish heart.
Observing entire Earth
When the cosmic Moon spread
Radiance of molten rays
Glittering on the earthly page
That speaks the quest
Of a wayward soul.

editors note:

Poets, ultimate outliers; struggling to wrestle odd fragments into whole expressions, equaling life. Beleaguered, indeed! – mh
