I cannot fathom why there are fathoms. And why aren't their similar words for seven, eight, nine, or any other depth but six feet? That is one of my unscratchable itches for many years.

    Hi Pyrrho. We have to do our best not to put our head in the sand and work to solve our own problems, don't you think? So many are immobilized and do nothing, to their own detriment. Make a decision, any decision--see if it works. If not, try something else. Thank you for your fun review. Marilyn

Wonderful writing! A very clever and artistic poem, beautifully constructed. And I love the 'icts' rhyme. You have worked wonders here. I imagine it is one of those poems that either came easily or took forever to write.

Thanks for sharing
Marion:)

    Hi M.L. Thank you for your terrific observation of this poem. Actually, this is something I truly feel so it was easy to write. That is, there are very few problems that can't be fixed if we try every avenue to solve them. (And at least we've taken some action.) If it can't be resolved, kiss it up to God and wait. If we sit on our duff, we'll never get anywhere. Anyway, that's my philosophy and so far it seems to work out. Again, thank you for reading. Marilyn

Well, good for you, Marilyn, that you were able to make all these lines rhyme at the end. You provide some good food for thought here, and you do it in such a clever way. Nice image you chose, too, to make your poem even that much more impressive.
Connie

Marilyn this is so well done, not only the mono-rhyme but each line a ten syllable count is outstanding. Blessings for a very Merry Christmas. Patricia

Hahahaha - so clever! I LOVED this one (and I do like mono-rhyme very much - in this case you've excelled at finding some great choices, I think)! I am again so far behind, with no hope of catching up. (sigh) Doctor's appt's, court and so on. Glad I didn't miss this one!

Your Escher print selection is certainly eye-catching. Thank you for sharing your skill at creating mono-verse rhyme and a life's lesson. Cheers- Joan

    Thank you, Joan, for your review. I can't imagine how Escher was able to produce such precision in his lithographs. An amazing feat. Marilyn

Marilyn,
You did a great job with the monorhyme throughout which is not an easy task. Your topic is well explained and thought provoking. The image is perfect. Good job and thanks for sharing.

[I hope the monorhyme use did not cause you more problems as your poem speaks. If it did, then I guess you found a solution.]

    Hi janny. Thank you so much for your fine review and comments. The monorhyme is one of my favorite forms. Sort of a fun thing. I feel to take action is the best bet. Why sit on our thumbs and do nothing. Most problems can be fixed. If one solution doesn't work, try another. Marilyn

Marilyn, this is a good monorhyme. The rhyming is very well done and the subject matter of problems and how it can affect us is cleverly crafted. Well done on this enjoyable read and thank you for sharing it.

    Thank you, DD, for your great review and comments. I appreciate it. Monorhyme is one of my favorites. With problems, we have to try to resolve them. If one solution doesn't work--to try another. Marilyn

Very well done Marilyn and mono-rhyme throughout, very clever. The subject matter is interesting and well thought out. Good 'confusing' picture - suits the poem well LOL. Enjoyed the read. Warm wishes Dorothy xx

We attempt to scratch what is being itched.
Plausible solutions are neatly nixed.
Facing the unknown, emotions are mixed.

Your words ring true, Marilyn. I so enjoy
the way you use the same sounding rhyme in
each verse - really impressive.


Margaret

    Thank you, Margaret. The monorhyme is one of my favorites because it's lots of fun. Yes, we have to do everything we can to solve problems. Most of them have a solution. Marilyn
