view from the top (tanka)

catching a view
that age old promise
walkin’ the beat
trying to reach the top
…just keep on walkin’

Written for The Secret Keeper’s prompt: view walk promise beat old

Inspired by a poem I wrote earlier in free verse

Walk don t run free verse on meditative reflections Free Verse

walk
take your time
walk
do not climb

walk
do not run
breath in
breath out

walk
take your time
don’t beat
the clock
reaching for the top

walk
take your time
in the end
you will
get a view
crossing over

walk
take your time
breath in
breath out

seeking,
longing
that aged old promise
everlasting life

walk
take your time
breath in
breath out.

  1. Reaching the top is a good goal to aspire to. It echoes your Free Verse poem but goes just a shade further. A good pair.While alive you just keep on living and moving forward into life. – jk
