She said – he said, two degrees of separation

Trying something different. My friend Margo wrote about her friend Joseph and the idea of a “quantum” poem. Think I got the basic idea. Here it is:

Sometimes I feel that my life is in not in my hands.

I think that I need to sketch a chalk line in my brain.

Sometimes a dream is the reality of a life I’ve imagined.

The way I imagine I see it is a vision and not the way it is at all.

Life and dream are miles wide and can reduce me to tears,

settle my head deep in reality and not  fly on in dreams.

    Love the photograph.

    The poem is exactly what is asked for. Three things going and all working together: marvelous. Great line: ‘I need to sketch a chalk line in my brain’.

    I’m going to leave a link at Joseph’s so others can read this.


    Where did you get the pinterest pin?

    Enjoyed. Your photograph reminds me of Leonard Cohen’s song Bird on a Wire.
