Over-Reaching World

Posted: July 20, 2014 in free verse, politics

Although the cause is scattered for all to see
The same questions are asked
as if expecting different answers
from black knit covered mouths
and missing black boxes
that still can not explain the insanity.
But resting in chairs with shoes still tied
and socks untouched are quiet voices
still clinging to appointment books,
stuffed animals and round trip tickets.
Mistakenly gone because of a miss-taken invisible route
Caused by ignorant men made lethal
by a bristling over-reaching world.


  1. Beautifully written and unfortunately too true.

    Enough said.


  2. So true. And sad to me. So many “mysteries” in our world, that I will never understand…the why’s the how’s.
    You convey so much in your poems…so much emotion…so much to ponder. Great job, J!
    HUGS!!! šŸ™‚


  3. BTW: I left you a comment in reply to your comment on my “Blue” post on Xanga! Ha! šŸ˜€ Your comment was the best one I got.
