“ Reaching ” ~ beyond ~

In my attempt

To reach beyond,

A stride the length

Of friendships bond,

Want but to take

Unwavering step,

To thus find place

Allegiance kept,

Composed of men

Who lost and wept,

Yet create space

They mean abide,

Blind now and then

To critical misguide,

For steps that echo

A language of regard!

“ Astray ” ~ in pro tem way ~

 

Without I stray

From held entomb,

Said salutary stay,

I can but seek

Echoes of roam,

Thus to attempt

A nomad bent,

Steers me astray

In pro tem way,

Till time runs out

Of freed to roam!
