My World (poem)

Updated on September 26, 2015

And so I saw my world today

To stray awhile with those I’d meet

Repeating laughs we shared before

Exploring what our neighbors hide


There at the corner of our street

We greet the scenic ocean shore

Imploring us to stride beside

The tide perhaps enjoy a dip


It didn’t seem like such a chore

Ignoring warning turn aside

Abide or else in rut you slip

A tip we should have listened to


Then all at once our minds did glide

Inside lost caverns we did skip

And flip around awhile to skew

Our view confounded and unwound


And then again there came this zip

A trip that brought me back anew

I knew my feet were on the ground

Astounded here I couldn’t stay

      Oh, Martin. This is a profound look inside such experiences, including the awareness that one can't stay at any point. Thank you! Interesting choice of music, too.

      Most creative poetry. Many a time our lives get turned topsy-turvy.
