Reckless Hope

..
Abandon ye
all fear. Here ye
(hear ye)
shall only hear
of things that
stay, the way
the sun shines
through the
broken. All un

-spoken gifts
shall remain.
Are we nothing
if not banished?

Give us this day
our daily
beard,
whiskers twitching
and bleating goat
-ees of phrase.

It pays to know
the muffin man,
the gatekeeper,
the star sweeper,
the man with the
oars. Forgive me,

Love. Iā€™d no idea
this universe
was yours.

    “ees of phrase” … This is such deep-healing medicinal ointment. (e.e. cummings, I mean)

    I LOVE this:

    Yes, that’s how it’s done! Brilliant.

  3. I love the use of enjambment here. But please may I pass on the daily beard?

  4. Love the enjambment and the listiness in your closing stanza…the tone is perfect!! šŸ™‚

  5. Wonderful, De! I love your ending on this.

  6. The enjambment is so clever-always. Wonderful work, De

    Kind of funny that just yesterday Little Miss picked out the story of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ for reading time. Love the nursery rhyme references. šŸ™‚
