The Shuffle

as we wander in the hustle
we get lost in the shuffle
caught in the ebon flow
of how the chaos goes

watching the road curve
into a roundabout folly
take three lefts into the verse
between heart and mind volley

folding the moments back into stack
pushing up the bridge front to back
sorting the order of what suits
clearing the way to the hidden fruits

when we walk the hustle
layered in the shuffle
we can bend the ebon flow
of how the chaos goes

  1. Nice rhyme indeed, the cat enjoyed it much. So true, we just take a step back once in a while and slow down, then maybe we can beat that chaos, at least a little bit.

  2. As writers we can and often do get lost among the words and such..
    this was a fun read and your rhyming was spot on-


  3. great rhythm and rhyme here you two… couldn’t help noticing stanza two’s deviance from your aabb rhyme-scheme but that’s probably just me being anal again πŸ™‚
