wrestlution ~ quadrille

wrestlution

I walk these paths
life’s threads
never simple, often tangled
beyond recognition

finding what matters
most, resolution
no simple matter

getting here filled with vexations
complications, estimations
taking stock of situations
convoluted permutations
constant need of calibration
causing me consternation

I wrestle with knots

This poem is my response to Quadrille #124, the prompt from Mish at dVerse ~ Poets Pub, which is to use a form of the word knot in a 44-word poem, with no required meter or rhyme.

  1. Oh, yeah; that third stanza blasts it off! Great stuff, KG. I don’t know why, after reading this (and all the other fine responses) I struggled so with this prompt. Just an off-day, i guess.
    Fine work, man!

  2. You may or may not be a genius, Ken, but I LOVED your last stanza!

    LOVED it.
