I think being able to see into the future might be a little scary. I prefer to not know what's coming. Go with the flow and deal with what come. Great poem though. Very well written

    I smile at this, because in your young mind you are so far ahead of the game because the here and now is all that is and not one silly thing otherwise matters.

I need those glasses. I love your poem. We all have questions or concerns about problems. We just wish we knew how they would turn out. I know I do. Thank you for sharing your poem

You did a good job expressing your thoughts and feelings about the current issues we face here on Earth. Yes, xray glasses would help see clearly and give many hope that is sorely lacking for most. Your lines flow smoothly with some rhyme and great imagery.
Thanks for sharing.
Respectfully, Jan

A very well-written poem about an excellent interpretation of the picture for the challenge. If we only could have x-ray vision who would be see danger around every corner and make better choices.

The last two lines are the crux of the message of the whole poem. We certainly do need calm. It give me anxiety to even hope for calm, for goodness to be restored. Many have lost vision, lost hope. This is a bit of a cautionary tale. I guess right now our only hope is being in it together.

A crooner picture and the title of stormy times. I tried to find a point of reference but I couldn't, until I read your posting. i like your quote about the X-ray vision to peek into that uncertain future.

Well there you have it, J. Forecasting glasses that can show us those trips in the river or the road before we face imminent danger and perhaps a shipwreck.

Excellent response to the Picture This Challenge.

One typo in the subtitle:

Don't abandoned (abandon) ship yet

Thanks for sharing.

Gloria

This poem, Stormy Times, seemed to call on super powers to look past this untenable present into some better future that makes staying around worthwhile.

Hi, Jim. Good creative poetry you have here, my friend. I personally can think of a lot more ideas if I could see through some things in my life. Trouble is I might have to go jail if I used them, :) Bob
