Potential

What is a song that goes unheard,
or poem if it has no words?
An echoed sound

that has no end,
a profound thought
,
stuck in a pen.

What is a frame without the art,
or actor with no spoken part?
A cage secured

on every side,
a gig to take
,
with hidden lines.

What is a film with no debut,
biography without your view?
A way to be deemed

as aloof,
a way to read
,
another’s truth.

What is a life without a twist,
or opportunity you missed?
A day relived

with no enhance,
a lesson shown
,
so take a chance.

    Old wise wisdom written somewhere. “Take no chances, have no fun.” Good morning from Michigan dear poet.

    1. Hello John. Taking chances can often times create opportunities. Unfortunately fear at times can truly hinder people from “Taking chances”. Good morning from the mountains of North Carolina…Hope you have an awesome day.

      1. I am. Grandchildren doing their homeschool in the other room and trying to stay warm. I know in the mountains of North Carolina dear Grace. Some snow?

      2. Hardly snow thankfully but lots of breeze. Homeschooling is quite tough but grateful for not having to take the drive to school on this cold morning.

      3. My grandchildren. Half and half. 1/2 classes. My grandchildren go school Tuesday and Thursday. Homeschool on Tuesday and Friday. They need to see the teacher.
