55-If U R A Wall


Being a piece of wall
is not enjoyable at all.
Unlike a door
that opens and closes,
I am grounded on the floor,
Listening to life's imperfect proses.
I spy ghosts
Winking at 55 word challenge posts.
I protect,
I also reflect
and detect.
If u r a wall,
how would u feel after all?

Excellent my friend. The Wall knows all it seems to me :)

Walls can be good and bad. They protect us from certain things and yet they can also isolate us. This is a predicament.

Like a wall, your 55 is solid and up-standing, Jingle!

Have a great weekend!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

This wall can be a safe guard or a prison . only the individual can determine which wall this is.

Wonderful and charming, Jingle. Your 55 reminds me of that brilliant part in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" where one of the Mechanicals has to play a wall in their drama :D

This is great! So well done--how would a wall feel? (and don't we all build them) Thank you.

Enjoyed this, Jingle. I've climbed a few walls in my day, but I never thought about how they might feel about it - lol!

Wall has many aspect of life---it protect,it reflect,it give you security --and in other aspect it is symbol of hurdle also.....overall it's nice poetry.

izzy said...

I love the first half ! you allowed yourself to be inside- the weight, the infrequent steps, passing shadows.
That wall at least is porous so when you became fearful, impatient, you had a way out and made like a ghost-

Deborah said...

I absolutely loved this! :o)

Bossy Betty said...

Loved this poem, Jingle!

theimaginativetraveler said...

I loved the musical flow of this poem, Jingle...a dance of words in my head...:)

Dom* said...

What is that in front of me
It is so tall I cannot see
Is it an obstacle made of block
Such structure stronger than rock
With no opening it is no door
It is a wall, and what is it for?

enjoy Jingle and Happy Saturday to ya(+)

Teresa said...

A very creative Ode to a wall. I love it!

DesignTies said...

Fun poem :-)

There's a tree museum in Switzerland where each tree is in front of a stone wall. The walls are amazing backdrops for the trees. If I were one of those walls, I'd actually be pretty happy :-)

As a wall, I stall those that ball and shout so that you can call the shots...Belated thanks for reading my Friday 55. Hope your week goes well

lime said...

depends on the purpose of the wall....is is part of a home or a prison?

she said...

great 55! walls have feelings? i always thought they held them in or kept them out. Nice perspective!

Lourie said...

If these walls could talk, the stories they would tell! Great post.
