Tinker Posted May 24, 2009 Share Posted May 24, 2009 Another experiment in meter... 12 lines of dactylic tetrameter... I cheated just a little. Best Left Behind Writing a story of love and its turbulent properties, takes me back farther than I'd like to go. It's true time has a way of distorting perspective and changing an incident totally void of propriety to an event of which some deem acceptable. You may have thought that this tome might be succulent bringing out secrets too juicy to verbalize, but--- telling embarrassing long buried, happenings only suffices to dredge up what's best left be- hind. With forgiveness a life can move forward and mercifully bring us to happiness here in the now. I propose that we leave it at that.----------------------- -- Judi Van Gorder Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
