Sunday Muse Poem -- Now What?


Other side 

Not sure how I got here 
Guards, guards, guards, everywhere 
I trusted--now these bars 
Not a prison but what 

For my safety they say 
I just wanted to climb 
Climb up that tall giant 
Sixteen story challenge 

Not the climb their worry 
But getting back down, whew 
Didn't tell them, I won't 
Lifelong intent--I'd fly

Or we could sneak you a parachute .... I think you may be stuck inside the prison of your own creation.

When I read this I feel it is a glimpse of a much bigger story. I enjoyed reading and wondering about the rest of the story.

Lifelong intent--I'd fly

A classic humour of you showing again Dr Jim! Great!

Aah! Caged by a virus! No need of guards for that :D I liked the sense of pure humour in your poem, Jim :)

Oh, this unnerves me. There's something about the rhythm and words that makes it feel like something that maybe shouldn't have been overheard. Intriguing.

Fly with the wind, I say! Hope your weekend has been good Jim!

Catch a ride on a passing cloud, Jim! Fly with the eagles!

Humans are quite adventurous; however I haven't made up my mind yet whether that is good or bad!
