Bill,

There is a national holiday I've been trying to figure out how to celebrate in poetry for a long time now. It's called 'No Rhyme; day. I've always wanted to write a poem that allllmost rhymed - but didn't. You know - set the reader up and then went in a different direction. Been playing with the idea for years - not diligently, that would be too much brain power - just waiting for something to come to me. ha

Now I don't have to. Thanks!

I had to think about this and I had to think that we have forgotten to have curiosity. Analytical thinking has been left by the roadside, we accept too easily opinions, half-truths, and rumors. We have become uninformed, or misinformed.
Well done Bill.
I think each reader sees and interrupts this differently
Regards.
Mary

Your not the only one who ponders. When there is so much at the present time of all that is going, I don't want to say what is troubling my mind.
You did great by taking my mind of all that is taking place in this disturbing world.

Some things are just to much for us to handle. Personally, I could care less where the river went. We might as well go home when he can't handle those tough questions. That's a great ending. It's better than continuing to bug your parents for answers. judi

I am perplexed about how the title of this verse matches the content of the poem??? Hmm.I enjoyed reading it, Bill and will ponder your words for a while :)

So many things to ponder in this world. Enough to keep us busy all the time, if we let it. I ponder many things. But in the end, like your poem, we have to let it all go, and accept it.

The human mind can only take so much. I've had my fill this week alone and feel much like your poem and abstract. I'm sure I'll snap out of it eventually. Maybe....
Sending you my best today as always,

Hey, I think I know that guy. Was he not one of our presidents? The profile seems awfully familiar, or maybe it is just my lying eyes once again playing tricks on me. If I am correct and not mistaken, the world would have been much better served if he had never left home in the first place.

Lol. Now that was a surprise ending! It starts rather philosophical and seems to be a meditation on nature but then in the end, all that matters is that we have a home to go to and rest.

I have to say that this artwork must have inspired you to write this poem. I like the internal rhyming and alliteration. Isn't true? It's so universal.

Well done.
