Persistence (Poem)

Persistence

What's of grey's
no matter. Behind
doors I dream
how life goes
rappelling, ascending, no
flat-lined horizons.

I love it. Like me...it's all straight ahead, and death as Dumbledore said, is just the next great adventure! Well written. (I think several of us are enjoying this Shadorma form..it works just right for some topics.)

The Shadorma is an addictive form, and you are excellent at it. The pun through "grey's no matter" and "no flat-lined horizons" work wonderfully both as negations and suitable imagery for your theme. Great Shadorma!

"Flat-lined horizons" - a phenomenally good line for that photo. Well done, Maureen.

Oh, the Shadorma...one I've yet to try, but now, newly inspired by you.

I like your use of words here, rappelling, ascending, flat-lined horizons, all fittingly good.
