One itch leads to another
Soon you’re chasing it
A current down a stream
Ever moving
Taking in the flow

All that has no weight to hold
Mud nor dam can stop
Keeping you from facing it

Water’s melody harmonizing with
An inaudible death


Monday at Celebrating their 7th anniversary! Prompt is the  quadrille, 44 words exactly, excluding the title, the word itch, which connected with the 7 year itch. How we connect words!

    This poem is a flowing stream nice how one concept just gather into the next accruing the weight of the whole until it just envelops you at the end. And oh yes, that music, harmonizing but inaudible, if a stream moves in its channel and no one is there to hear it does it sing a song? 💜 this


  6. I love it when people explain my poems. It always amazes me that They see so much more than I do. Thank you for your kind words.

    Oh yes…..itching begets itching begets scratching and more scratching like that current flowing, then faster, then more and faster still.
    And then that turn in the ending ! For me, a fast stop.
