Without a net.....

into the unknown

wide eyed

to gasping oblivion

tremblingly uncurling

Jodi MacArthur said...

I think of a sensuous trapeze artist who has leapt into the unknown. A risk taker full of regret.

Simply gorgeous. I love the emotion this poem brings on.

Helen Ginger said...

I love the way the words tumbled like water cascading down rocks.

Karen from Mentor said...

Poetry as water. Love that idea Helen.

Karen from Mentor said...

Wow Jodi, I would never in a million years have seen that interpretation. Especially the regret...but I see it now through your eyes....thank you for the gift of that.

with Cathy, Kevin and Gracie

Thank you all for taking the time to read and comment.

*happy sigh* <--I've been doing that an awful lot lately...

big smile

Kris said...

Wow! Gives me goose bumps! Well done, Karen!

ganymeder said...

What a wonderful poem! It gives me a sense of freedom and foreboding at the same time. *chills*

Karen from Mentor said...

@ Kris and Cathy,

Nice. Goosebumps and the heat of the summer no less.

*looks pleased*

Kris I'm especially pleased to see you commenting since you've said that poetry isn't your thing. [we might make you a fan of poetry yet Kris. Wouldn't that be fun? *starts daydreaming* Kris would be sitting in the van, waiting to pick up the kids, jotting down lines for her newest poem... ah....what a visual]

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment my lovelies.

It's much appreaciated.

Love this. It's exactly how leaping into the big unknown feels. Scary and amazing... becoming undone. Sometimes the same act can take us apart AND put us together. You go, girl!

Marisa Birns said...

Puts me to mind of a diver standing at cliff top and jumping into a forward dive into the sparkling water.


Karen from Mentor said...

Oh I love that image Marisa. Thank you.

That's exactly right Judy! You know me soooo well.

*happy sigh*

Laura Eno said...

This is very sensual... *** *** ******** ***?

Karen from Mentor said...

lol....*gets out asterisk to English code book*

Thanks for stopping in to see me today Laura..I know you're deep in your cave writing... I hope you put your sunglasses on to creep out into the sunlight to visit with us mere [probably] mortals for a while.

*hugs Laura*

How beautiful, Karen, simply amazing how you can capture so much in so few words!

Karen from Mentor said...

Thank you Estrella. *hugs Estrella*
I'm loving the different interpretations.

Laurita said...

Really beautiful. The 'falling wide eyed' creates a wonderful sensation. I just want to linger there.

Karen from Mentor said...

I would be more than pleased to have you linger with me Laurita. Life is full of wide eyed moments these days.

*happy sigh*

Thank you for your lovely words.
