A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)



Of empty barrels

And pots to fill

That’s what she

Thought, it was all about –

And readily offered

To be so inundated:

Fact, fiction,

They soon merged;

Language and thought

So much to touch!

But they didn’t say

That barrels emptied

Or pots, yet hollow,

If they so remained,

Sometimes surging, welling,

Other-times, upturned, cleared out –

Was all that mattered.

Lessons weren’t to be

Stored: airtight.

Dank, dour, dark.





12 April, 2018, Day#12 of #NaPoWriMo – it’s getting to a challenge now 😀 The muse, the words, they linger longer at the threshold of recognition, not fain to enter when asked 😀

  1. ‘Power comes out from the barrel of a gun’
    Is what i thought when this was begun
    But pots followed
    She said they’re hollowed
    But our minds are full with what she’s spun!

  2. Knowledge has to be shared she does think
    And with this i am totally in sync
    Knowledge that doesn’t flow will shrink
    Just as stagnating water will throw up a stink.
