The knight’s plight in 1000 years #WWUC #poetry

Can you just see

One thousand years

when  sailing

on a cloud?

Will they remember

on distant star

that celestial travel

was not allowed?

***

will the  men

in very shiny suits

donning that airy stuff

per chance remember

back in time

suiting up

boys- that was tough

***

and when your lady

winks at you

do you stutter

with a sigh

or do you shudder

at the thought

there’s more glue

there than eyes?

***

One thousand years

I dread the thought

my ruins will be gone

but darling please

do not forget

my love

goes eternally on…

This may seem a silly reflection to 1000 years in either direction but the knight in his tale wants all to remember that love prevails for a thousand upon thousands of years…

This knight’s poem is in response to a prompt over at New World Creative Union. We are asked to reflect on history and the future and where we might be.

  1. you caught 1000 years in either direction quite succinctly and with a valuable lesson “love prevails” or else…
    Thanks for sharing over at NWCU

  2. love the lines “do you stutter at the sigh or shudder at the thought” there’s real magic there. nice reponse to the wake up call
