I'm extending my back to shatter any myth

that Much Energy (here)

the 11 of 12 given words:
Central Masterful Finesse Illusion Shatter Brevity Empathy Lover Money
Cri De Coeur (n.)) a passionate appeal, complaint)
Nostrum ((n) a medicine prepared by an unqualified person)

Central to the issue is a consideration
How masterful am I to exude that much energy
With such finesse to leave them in consternation
Is it an illusion to blind me to reality?

I'm extending my back to shatter any myth
In all brevity it is expected to command empathy
I'm here longing with ideas devoid of filth
Where is the lover with the money?

This is entirely a  plain Cri De Coeur question
I have to accord with due respect a decent curtsy
Or are you demanding I prostrate in humiliation
I can't expect to concoct a nostrum in all sincerity

  1. As always Hank a most wonderful verse, and such a joy to read.


  2. "I'm extending my back to shatter any myth"

    I'm really captivated by this line - it's so rich and wonderful.

    1. I agree with Pat that line really stood out to me!

  3. That extension can sure help, or hinder, depending.

  4. Love how you used all these words so wonderfully to pair so well with the photo. Always a delight to read your poetry Hank!

  5. Hank, you weave the words with mastery.

    Is it an illusion to blind me to reality?

    That is a powerful question to ponder.
