Someone Elses Prompt....

pause

nothing good
starts with a
pause

with an instant
to steel or steady
to reason or reckon

nothing: no thing
good waits.

See, good plunges
forward.

like a
falling fool

like a puppy
without breaks.

like a
full frontal
hard -pressing -firmly
intent on a thigh.

good can't
take time
to breathe
let alone
think.

Such is
this rapid
fire we call
good.

Such a joy to read...and :-)

The rhythm works so well with your words.


Glad your daughter is okay after this "first". I trust mother is as well.

Fine poem! I forgot it was Thursday (I forgot TUEsday, too, but my keyboard been nutty and I couldn't have posted anyway.)

this part's really hot (after the full frontal stanza):

good can't
take time
to breathe
let alone
think.

Love it. It's so direct. I especially like your take on the word "good."

This is making me comb my brain for something good that begins with a pause...not finding anything. No thing. : )

Great observation well delivered.
