Lingering jump

Highway ~ courtesy of Tess Kincaid


Settled in the restless
midst of night
I road two-sides ways.

The street lamps lights
highlight the margin line,
where soul mix & self-fix
toasty subtle skin
like ambrose within.

Yields the palate
of shadow hunt
I’m testing a lingering jump
quantum way
to embrace the winter hut.

A prisoner of four walls
I'm a ghost of
layered thoughts.

A fresh start shimmering
tends to spill.
Behind the veil
of closed eyes
the hint.

by Brenda Warren ~ Sunday Whirl

  1. I road two-sides ways, I really like, and could clearly be the title for my magpie. Bravo with your staying within your lane and yet covering so many others, upon life. Excellent piece.

    1. Uncomfortable feelings bring us to new project, art, poem...Is it not good reward for sacrificing comfort?...~ Thanks!

  14. Wow!
    The street lamps lights
    highlight the margin line,
    where soul mix & self-fix
    toasty subtle skin
    like ambrose within.

    Like Ambrose within - brilliant!
