This Escapade – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Escapade – Word of the Day


Winter on the Blackwood River a few years ago.

This Escapade
The guilty pleasure of time stolen,
no one waiting or knowing,
with no appointed time to place us anywhere,
even Cronos wasn’t looking.
And so the world gently faded
as the river called us along
to sing its free-form song,
that together we would flow
and be yes to each other,
imperfectly complete,
and fully wondered.

  8. Borrow CalmKate’s response as my words lack prowess. One of your very best, imperfectly complete and fully wondered – Kudos, sir.
