For Real Toads: Wednesday Challenge

Kerry, filling in for Kenia at the Wednesday Challenge in the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, has asked us to write about a personal relationship.

This little poem is about a specific time and place in my memory, but can apply, I believe, to almost any relationship between two people.

he was right
and I was wrong
so I might
forever long
to turn the clock
to right the wrong

A universal feeling, for sure, Kay.

Mary said...

Ha, I think this might be a kind of universal sentiment. I hate when I say something I regret later.

Timing is everything! This is certainly relatable.

Margaret said...

How about

I was right
and he was wrong...

Kay said...

You're absolutely right! I've been known to put my foot in my mouth too many times to count.

Daryl said...

oh a tongue twister to boot!

Kerry O'Connor said...

Oh ,yes.. too many such instances to count on one hand, but all too human to dwell on past mistakes, rather than accepting them as part of the journey.

I am not much of a poetry person, but this is one I truly like.

This makes me think of the old joke: if a man says something in the forest, and there is no one there to hear him, is he still wrong?

My, I have been there. My clock would have to be rewound on several things.

Cad said...

Brilliant little snippet of a poem!

It is what is NOT said that is so powerful.

Susan said...

How does it feel to be right? We know what it feels like to be wrong.

Hannah said...

The brevity is so right for this piece...directly and beautifully stated.
