Fulfilled – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

What Do You See?



Image provided by Willow Poetry



She wasn’t like others
to maunder through life,
she took each day with purpose and,
while it all made such sense to her,
it was a puzzle to everyone else,
her lines were not always straight
yet, mysteriously, they fitted together
and what was most pleasing of all,
she always felt fulfilled,
renewed and complete.

  4. I very much think your verse reflects where I am (or really have been most of my life)… at least to my family. While it is good to have different strengths… when others have no understanding of what kind of support to give – it can be disappointing.

    Which is why I suppose we share with our different ‘prompt’ families – to encourage, share and hold hands across the pages 🙂

  5. I love it when I learn a new word. I did not know the word ‘maunder’ before but it is just the word I was looking for while writing about a raccoon in the back yard yesterday. Thanks!

  7. Sometimes life is a mystery to others whereas it is fulfilling and content to the one living it.
