So well-crafted with the enjambment and rhyme scheme. You speak pointedly to me and others of "a certain age," when a particular new pain causes concern that would have passed unnoticed in years past. Thanks for this missive so well-expressed
"Fear", is an extremely well-written and deftly descriptive piece. This talented poet's work was a pleasure to both read and review. To me, this is definitely a six. I look forward to seeing your next post.
I just read a contest entry about snakes. That is one of my biggest fears. I have had vivid nightmares about snakes. So interesting to read and review that poem and then find this post about fears. I will try to remain calm and get through the rest of my day feeling brave.
Outstanding poetry, Jay, as usual from you. Your writing always carries a lesson of sorts with it. Each of them just as with this one, contains wise advice or reflection on lessons learned. Bravo, my friend. : ) Bob
They say 90% of what we fear never happens. Fear has always been my biggest enemy, but I am bless to have the Lord who has all things in his hands and great friends and family to encourage me. Fear is Satan's greatest tool. We need to let the Lord wrestle it from his hands. Well done as always sir. Rox
