the 12 given words:
boot cringe lift stem moon print 
mist live chip spin trim tick

It is sacrilege to boot
One will just cringe for a lift-off
Looking at the scenario for a lead
In all innocence, it is an attempt to roll out
To venture outside from the clutches
Of those having undue control
It is only fair to stem the tide

On a night when the moon is shy
of showing its print
Only when the air is still
can  be discerned nature's hold
Time to take a harder look

It is only right to detect a semblance of order
A night devoid of mist so as to live in peace
To stifle a spin in the making
And chip a wedge in between takes
That is what it should be

Trim off the fat and tick off all the play-acting
Life is all about extending the olive branch
Life is all about forgiving

  1. I love that concluding stanza! Sometimes re-booting seems the only option.

  2. Your closing stanza, wow, if only, if only all could extend an olive branch and for it to be accepted would not the world be more peaceful.

  3. I totally agree with the message in this poem Hank, however there are people in this world wo think themselves perfect and because they bear grudges have not come across the word "Forgivness

  4. Forgiving is an important life skill. It does much more for the person who does the forgiving. Lovely poem.

  5. I can forgive most things, but I don't forget. Fool me once, never again lol

    1. I agree, Pat. We must forgive, for if we don't the darkness of if will consume us. But forgetting? Never. If we don't learn for life's lessons, the kicks to follow are our own fault.

      Extend the "olive branch", but never forget why you had to.

  6. "...tick off all the play-acting", indeed.

  7. I like 'live in peace' and forgiving...clear vision.
