“ Impotence ” ~ a wall oblique ~

In fragile innocence

Finds first originate

The face of boundaries,

That which means feed

Limits inherently held,

Until we’ve broken thru

Our childhood impotence,

Thus to survive confines

Said then a wall oblique,

Till child be the man

He was destined so to find!

    • Thank you Paulette. Most encouraging to read your reaction to this poem. I had been hesitant to air it, feeling I had said too little to complete the picture, while not wanting to, so as to allow others to complete it with their own personal imagery. Your words suggests that it said it all as is, and for this I thank you again, my dear friend. Jean-Jacques
