Liam Power

A Decision re: grad school


All of the pieces of it

jostled around over an hour

with a friend in conversation.


She simply pointed

with her questions

toward my decision


I will go to France

to Toulouse where I will

lose only my ignorance

and perhaps my innocence.

    Enjoy your trip to France Liam, my granddaughter lives and works in France.

      Thank you Andy.
      I've got a tenuous family connection myself. It's a lovely place.

    • Doggerel Dave

      You will be following the great tradition of the Grand Tour, where you will imbibe great cultural ideas and perspectives. So absorb it all.....and please be a good boy scout... 🙂
      Good luck.

      • Liam Power

        Will do Dave.

        'She simply pointed
        with her questions'
        *while snapping away - at yearning's frame, stilled - time*
        'I will go to France
        to Toulouse where I will
        *to shed this unrequited - state, free myself
        and find, a new muse - to life: for me*
        (forgive me for borrowing your beautiful words and rudely interpreting them, to inspire my own feeble creativity)
        stay safe dear youthful poet and hope you have a great time
        jump on a train and visit our dear little blighty, when you're free
        stay clear of London
        and you're sure to have a memorable time, I guarantee
