Rabbit Hole (Poem)

Recollect Alice – press on
Suffer the sport – bear it
Make it funny
Clearly, familiarity
Forges sensibility
Unforgotten tales remind
You’re not alone.

Writing Exercise (Poem)

Just five syllables
Modest prompt of oneself
Line one underway

To sit – just let it happen
Silently await

We’re always thoughtful
Access . . . process in writing
Creative pastime

Practice makes perfect
As they say; still, truth be told
Expression occurs

Almost instantly
Fragmented thoughts and notions
Gray matter sorting

Assembled imprints
Swelling on a tide, posit
Midday poetry

Far Beyond Influence

Push me push you
Topple them
Push together
Stand truer
But only when
One resists
–at least the one–
Truth just might
Topple them

Regarding the term ‘push’:

Do you more often hear the term, or feel its meaning?

Upon reading Robert Lee Brewer’s Wednesday Poetry Prompt today, it occurred to me that I don’t often hear the term spoken. Most often, I see “PUSH” when exiting a business or institutional building.


Vocally—except in such simple, helpful directive as referenced above—it’s not common to need to say it.. That is, unless there exists a pressing matter of need (actual or imagined) for resolve.

Can you think of scenarios in which you’ve experienced the meaning of the word ‘push’? I’d be curious to hear about them. You can comment, or drop a link in comments (perhaps to your own post which uses the term).

Thank you for visiting!
