Both sides of the net

Even arthropod eyes
hurtling down airborne highways
cannot register strings of spectral hues
one in two chances for the miniscule
to slipstream between or else a weighty rage
against sticky bonds and the gravitational pull
of the grave 

but headway is not always safe passage
we blunder overboard, plunge from heights
without a safety net

Am with Real Toads in the Imaginary Garden today for the Flash 55 PLUS ‘Space

  1. What a superb poem, Laura. I felt my imagination expanding and contraction under the guidance of your words.

    1. great commeny Kerry – you’ve summed up what words are for beyond the day to day

    1. What an imaginative comparison – thank you. That road has been guided by an inadequate sat nav!
