Purposeful Pause – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

when will the subtle 
silent, shadows of sureity
be noticed in your day

will your eyes always be drawn away
suduced into following flash floresent
the orange-red of fake fire
immediate over postponed desire

will you try on the bluegreen lined in lime
a cool energy alternative 
worthy of afternoon considerations 

oh, I understand more than you know
this would require stopping
you don't have time for that

    1. Bjorn,
      It is interesting that you read it that way. It is one of the things that I adore about poetry.
      Thanks for hosting. I wish I could have attended your live gathering.
