Into the Fray

Updated on July 29, 2012

Just a nobody with something to say

Tongue tied nuances trip in foreplay

Pull at my threads as I walk away

Shed light on the far side into the fray

============================

Visually vexed by the paints you display

Tenderly torqued colors lay in disarray

Create the doubts futilely held at bay

Shed light on the far side into the fray

============================

Silenced by the convex curve you allay

Where nothing is straight but in the grey

Renders truth to the fear of quiet betray

Sheds light on the far side into the fray

=============================

Instinctively vigilant the means of the prey

Decipher the code of the words you weigh

Clarifies the dark paths where you stray

Sheds light on the far side into the fray

=============================

Once an innocent that was lost in play

Time the mother that showed the way

Repairs the fabric of exponential decay

Sheds light on the far side into the fray

=============================

      A terrific poem and well woven as usual Amy. It's the intricate pattern of your poems that I like. You jump into the fray but there is hope shining from afar.

      Amy, I could read so many different emotions while reading, then i watched the video and was amazed. I think sometimes we all want to run away from the fray to find peace and tranquility. Beautifully written my friend..

      Dear buddy Bill, you truly are a friend to devote that much time to unraveling my poetry, especially since poetry, in general, is not your first preference of reading material. That makes me doubly grateful for your support and words of encouragement. Buddies to the end

      My dear Amy!

      I find I have to read your poems toward the end of the day when all other distractions are gone. I need full attention to navigate my way through your words. This poem could go in so many directions, so I grab one thread and pull until it is unraveled, only to find another thread to pull...and so it goes until I've finished, then look back.....and we start all over again.

      I read a lot of poetry on this site....you are on the top of my favorite list...easily....

      your buddy,

      bill

      Your synopsis is amazingly astute, Mark, of which I am not surprised. You are brilliant. Thank you for the confidence and the support you give me.

      An amazing look at the run....from the beginnings of thought to the eventual meeting of spirit "into the fray". Then the light shining on the far side.....
