Poem: Blunder weighs this or that true prize arise

Updated on February 19, 2016

Tim Mitchell has been writing poetry since high school. He enjoys exploring them, the many forms, and writing them

Seen along one's path may be obstacles like puddles full of its own dangers. Steps may become dampened as the spirit too joins. Hope remains perhaps with pen in hand wandering.

Glee plummeted as thundered heaven’s tears fell,

Dusk hides brightness flowers absence of hued tints,

Upon pathway steps grow weary fallen logs befell,

Eyes cast downward before knows not of merriment.


Alas, two days traveled distance seems as yesterday,

Ahead great wonders promise of treasure and surprise,

Bands of robbers thrust capturing quarry great sway,

Strange creatures freely roam growls plunder contempt.



Break of dawn skies full falling rain shadowy clouds hide,

Tweet of birds harmonizing lack songs filling full air of glee,

Distance boat ghosts along shoreline seen vision aside, aha,

A friend stands nearer close than far as cause gives reason.




‘Tis time is plight crowded nigh narrow wondered path,

Pond’s friendship ripples reveal lilies float wonderment,

‘Twas once path calm of winter’s fatigue pen shares wrath,

Door sways hither and forth backward forward between.

Nature's wonders offer delight and healing with one's soul weary of days travel. Upon its grace seen beauty within and surrounding life as a smile dances with joy and laughter.

Task alas glee reason not plums of gold nor jewels,

Leprechaun’s delight of prize held close tee-hee echoes,

Fairies dance sing with angels muse tap upon this fool,

Alas, glee fills laughter forth rings true of season ha-ha . . .

      The imagery is stunningly beautiful. I like your explanation of its creation. It always makes me wonder what inspired the author. Nicely done.

      Hello Jodah I welcome this visit with thankfulness having read so much of you here and there with works and conversation by forum. Sharing is I am like Timothy the Turtle racing the hare ;-) Your question has inspired me to write a brief Hub knowing a struggle of mine is being lengthy at times, so I seek brevity now while may run asunder. I think I will write that Hub you inspired later today :-) at least for community purpose if not Google. We’ll see if time allows . . . perhaps thought may be needed.

      The form of this poem is about a struggle to pass the QAP with an informational Hub with seemingly endless attempts, although each time brought new knowledge with learning. So, perhaps are disguised gifts. I will reveal those with that Hub your question inspired. It may be testimonial too if done appropriately complying with HP guidelines.

      The format of this poem is beginning with an image of somewhat bleakness the affect is likened to the opening image. The four line stanza with rhyme are spaced each time growing wider likened to the journey seeking improvement and compliance. Soon, there is revelation seen with an inserted image. It is coincidental to the theme of that Hub in question. That Hub is questioning if a poet is motivated to write or is inspired with a message to share.

      One secret to tying it all together was 3 days prior of the info Hub was a poem published passing the QAP easily. It is about a poet with loss of inspiration likened as a friend. Finally the poet sees revelation clearly. So, really the poem here we see is three Hubs and the continuous journey as an author. That is with seeing friendships and knowing today and tomorrow brings new harvests with planted seeds seen through ideas, notions, and learning.

      I am interested to know how this poem was constructed Tim. Each line is packed with seemingly contrasting descriptions and phrases. I just have to keep rereading it..so that is good.
