Waves of doubt surface and spin through the rocky shore

the click clacking pebbles and stones rinsed

as the lingering fizz clatters in the mind

and if

these swirling waters begin to rise in unison with the sun

and waltz transparent into a heated breeze of flowing hope

and if

it were the catalyst to the quickening pulse of a speeding wing

swift in idle it might soar

mounting higher and higher,  a glorious love

but suppose

a feather were to detach

midair in this cloudless simple sky

and fear tumbled  to the sea

Simple in its rendering, profound in its impact. Seldom, sadly, do most consider the implications of subtle scratches on the iris of time. Like the crystal protecting one's watch face, the unpredictability of wear and tear, like a feather falling, must be embraced as a lesson, just as all interruptions of flow are designed to teach. I thoroughly enjoyed this folding of metaphor upon metaphor. Thank you for sharing your insight.

Powerful and highly symbolic imagery. A poem that makes one think, with a "what if?"...

IT IS UNDERSTOOD, AND RIGHTFULLY SO...'A BURNT CHILD, DREDS FIRE...' BUT, GOD HAS NOT BROUGHT ONE THROUGH SO MUCH...TO SUDDENLY ABANDON THEM. ONE MUST HAVE FAITH, SO YES...DESPITE THE FEAR OF TUMBLING, 'SOAR'...AGAIN. USUALLY, WE ARE STRONGER THAN WE THINK AND HOPEFULLY...WISER. THANKS FOR SHARING THIS METAPHOR WITH GREAT IMAGERY AND REALISTIC MEANING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

I like these lines. Laurel

That feather is walking on thin water. Fear spreads faster than good news.

Another top and unique rendition.

A dynamic piece of masterful art, Morgan ~

Let's hope, someday, that happens for all of us. Struggling with fear can [surely] stultify a persons dreams and endeavors. Good message, MM, with in force images. peace... r

fear tumbles to the sea where it is devoured by its own flight ...

excellent poem ...
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 11/28/2011
fear is a gravitational force while faith is elevational. A feather can have no fear as long as it inhabits its natural domain of air, but can it walk on water?! :)) Makes me think of Icarus and falling angels... and of love which draws us always towards the sun. I like how you cause our thoughts to tumble in this questioning and questing write, Morgan. xx

it's such a delicate balance really,
what works for us and what doesn't
and so easy, too easy perhaps, to doubt
ourselves; i love this picture of the shore,
rough and real and scattered, not one of
those perfectly manicured white sand beaches.
Strong worthwhile poem, Morgan.

It is wonderful to see you posting again! Your bittersweet poem is a good example of letting go of our problems and being cleansed in water to start over once again. Words of wisdom written very well indeed! I Enjoyed this.
