Juxtaposition #atozchallenge #poetry #photography


Caught between the handrails of life

suspended above the path of my own choosing

I hear the words “step softly”

A rash reply teases my teeth

pushing against my tongue

heedlessly fleeing my lips

head over heels I fall

losing my path

the handrails of life just move away

unable to catch this fool


I did not do an exhaustive search, but I could not find a poetic term or form for the letter J. If you know of one, please enlighten us.

“No pen, no ink, no table, no room, no time, no quiet

No inclination.”

~ James Joyce (Brainy Quotes)
