The Life Cycle of a Ball of Yarn

The top of a hill was my starting point

I could see my whole world laid out from above


My yarn tightly knitted into a hard ball

I rolled over mountains and through waterfalls


I started to wonder if I’d ever find

a path that would bring me peace of mind?


Suddenly I saw you - majestic and bright

I rolled to get closer and hinted a smile!


You leaped for the final and ran out of yarn

The end of the line - your tip touching mine


I followed your trail perhaps to find out

If you were the one I was destined to find


The roads you roamed through hell and back

looked perfectly straight from the start of your track.


...which sadly turned out to be the end of mine.

novicemaster: The imagery in this prose poem is glorious. I love the way you manipulate words. You seem to have harnessed them to bend to your every whim. The slightly archaic ones like "whilst" make this resemble a fairytale. The entire idea of a prose poem is brilliant. I didn't get the ending at first, but ...
