Excellent free verse, Barb. I think it helps your poem move along to have titled each stanza with a single word to give us a prelude into your thoughts and apparently menacing surroundings until at last the candle light leads the way home. The works well as a metaphor for life and also the memory of being lost in the far north.

A most enjoyable read today. :)

Gloria

You did a great job with your challenge poem for the Free Verse Club, Barb. I enjoyed reading it. I like the way you formatted your lines. I like how each verse starts with that one word (different for each verse) and expands on it. The ending is great, too. I'm thrilled that glow helped you find your way home safely. Thanks for sharing. Respectfully, Jan

This is really a beautiful free verse, Barb. It's a deviation from your usual rhyme pattern and I had to look again to see if I was actually reading your poem. Yes, I was. Great job. Marilyn

A great story told in your free verse. I liked how you structured the poem with a single word to focus on in each stanza! And I'm glad that the narrator has reached peace at home.

This is a beautifully written poem. I love how you started each verse, the same way. I love the line about a "trick of the eye leading into the abyss" that part is beautifully written
Thanks!

What vivid descriptions in each stanza. If I had to pick a favorite, and that would be difficult, I'd say it's the one where the light directs you to safety. What an experience. Beautifully written.

Another fine poem, Barb--perfectly describes being lost--that mixture of panic and fear that washes over you when you realize you have no fricking idea where you are
