play on words


brashly striding into the foresight,

notes lilt on the breeze

lean onto staffs for strength

as times gone by are obscured

by forward-stretching glow of a lantern.

phases are unnaturally discerned,

playfully stepping to plumb emotions;

scaling back into the claret

for a rest ‘fore pitching sharply.

little anchors the vision

of the weary wandering into fugue.
