Till Next Time

Till Next Time

                                                               The Quest ~ Philip Brent Harris


Recently, I’ve struggled, trying to write,
All the words I choose simply take flight,
And my love of the page I cannot requite,
Though I try and try with all of my might.

Love isn’t claimed or conquered by force.
Still, boldness is often required, of course.
Could be fighting a duel or racing a horse,
Singing below a balcony till you’re hoarse.

Can this pertain to my words, my muse?
A lover’s quarrel less than a poor excuse.
I do not remember a fight, see its refuse.
A word or thought stuck, now it is loose.

Whatever it is, I claim what I’ve written.
No longer, my brain encased in a mitten.
Mental fingers flexing, claws like a kitten,
Till next my words decide to stage a sit-in.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
