Unrestrained...





 Poet's United is contemplating Fences

It does no good
Whether steel or wood
Or entwined with summer’s most fragrant bloom
Whether passing through clover
Or holding would-be lover
Or soldered in turrets of wrought-iron gloom

It is no use
No chain-link ruse
Or rampart to the bluest blue
Can ever restrain
Or begin to contain
This rambling, roving thought of you…

  3. Wonderful! You take us through a variety of scenarios, each one clear in the mind's eye; and then you lead us to crescendo of emotion in that final line. I like this very much.

  8. The photos are so beautiful! A wonderful collage! I enjoyed the poem with the first stanza depicting types of fences, and the second underlining that nothing can fence in "thoughts of you". Cool!
