I Buckle My Shoes..

Written for 3WW Prompts: Buckle, Evade, Wedge


I Buckle My Shoes..


I buckle my shoes
Vital to evade slipping
In a wedge of self- created
Pot-holes on the road
As mind wavers and
Keeps getting lost in forming
A haiku or a poem
Out of realities
Scattered all around
Eyes pick them up
And let them lurk somewhere
At the back of mind
Because it’s in those
Very special moments
While walking that I find the gift
Of imagination too unpacking
Itself at corners unseen
And unexplored
A blend of imagination
And reality then
Gives shape to verses
As I hurry to reach home
To put them on my ‘page’
And in those
Paced and hurried moments
It feels good to remember
That I seldom forget
To buckle my shoes

As I already told,
Vital to evade slipping
In a wedge of self- created
Pot-holes on the road….



****


A Haiku.....

Buckles under force
Evades ‘Right’, falls in a
wedge
Wrong is happy..

  3. The poem has an enchanting rhythm skipping through the thrills of ideas forming, but remembering to watch for potholes! Like the circle of the poem!

  19. Ramesh, loved the first one especially. I actually saw someone fall in a pothole, not comtemplating poetry, but punching out a message on their IPhone! At least you fall in potholes with good reason, and to great effect. BRAVO!

    Great 3WW this week, huh? Amy BL
