Holding Fast

Given that the first day of the workshop is now over, I bet anything the title of this next poem and picture is perfect!

Meeting the Unexpected

A young executive, stressed by the frenzied pace of his e-market world,
seeks solace by paddling on a small placid pond.

What to his wondering eyes should appear
but
the crack between worlds.

No one prepared him for this.

His dog offers no defense
having seen it all before.

 

What’s a young man to do?
He can’t ignore his experience.

Nor should you. . .
