Free-ward



Free-ward


gather my thoughts as
wildflowers
pluck my enchained body from
the cement sunk post of routine
lift me,
pull me,
free
into the stream of you
your invisible, irresistible,
gutsy, galleon force
grasp me 
hard
flow me 
fast
to you
carried on your current
borne away - away
from the endless ring of type-
casting
each laundry list of latent laments
to the whirling winds of
change

  8. The movement in this poem swirls the reader along with the narrator. I am a little dizzy now:)

  9. This one really catches the current of fast and fluidly moving water. It flows with great phraseology. Really like those final lines and "the laundry list of latent laments".
