Meditation on rhyme

Updated: Apr 18, 2021

Words that fit together in a rhyme are

the second hands on a clock that tells

perfect time.

A skip, a hop, a full stride gallop

one can see the effort as the

thing develops.

Once in rhyme it is hard to leave

because so much of it is something

up a sleeve.

Paul Simon was called Rhymin' Simon

the words just flowed, honey rolling

sparking diamonds.

Some use a dictionary of a kind

to find words they may not know

or yet to define.

Like the couple who complete puzzles

the missing piece may be a lost die

some call a trussell.

One must leave the land of rhyme

or risk becoming enchanted in

Don Quixote time.
