Poetic Asides the finale - and so it draws to a close ...

letting go

it seems
it would be
a relief after
an entire month
of prompts;
trying to come
up with the
perfect phrase,
the right words

a title with meaning;
one that says
enough to grab
and hold interest
but not give away
the heart
the complexity
you want to
use to lead
the reader on

as if taking them
by the hand
and ever-so-carefully
tugging them
gently along
your deftly
crafted path

making sure
they feel
the excitement,
the undeniable
built into
your work

ensuring the reader
will not be
able to resist
one word

ah – is it any
wonder you are
feeling just
the slightest
of regret
at the thought
of letting go?
