Hyane

The unfavorable hour.

Four minutes to reach the destination.

 

Retrieve the essential item.

Go, run quickly.

 

The rain is pouring.

There are sirens from afar.

 

The wheels are turning.

The feet—

  • L. B. Mek

    this succinct write
    not only works, as a stand alone immersive poem
    but, as a metaphor
    for so much of life's diverse
    struggles and strife
    its potential to express and empathise
    and in so-doing, become a relatable read, for so many
    is immensely impressive..
    thank you! for choosing to share your poetic genius
