Bent Rudder

Bent Rudder

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

yes

"

 

A bent rudder missteered

Sending sailing stanzas astray

Bent masts with torn sails

Let each rhyme flap away

Tears from cloud’s skies

Formed a pool of remorse

For weatherworn verses                 

Needing to reset their course

Until a sailor’s salty sky

With cloud’s sails reset

Brought poetics back

As a re-rigged asset

A profound explanation of how we start a poem with one thing in mind, but then things veer into the most unexpected directions. Ours might be the muse of mangled masts. I often feel the roil of rambling rudders, how 'bout you? "Stanzas sailing astray" (besides being a perky patch of poetics) seems to be something unique to your muse. That's why I love to review you. Always looking for a stray stanza to sail away on (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks Sharon
hope all is well
Both words and boats can find themselves in stormy waters. Both words and boats can alter course too. Good day Dave. Hope all is well across the pond.

Our words have the power to chart and stay on course, though sometimes they are misguided.
There's an underlying wisdom in your words.
