tunneled view---Totally Optional Prompts

alluring electrons align to flow, giving away their playfulness
volts jump around when wattage changes
fluctuating energy stabilizes itself after much confusion
jolted equipments pause a while before running smoothly
rippling away, waves pass through nonchalantly
in that vacuum, air might have been disbarred
fluidity decides to acquire more speed for free movement

"do you or do you not see light at the end of the tunnel?"

Sometimes it seems more like a labyrinth. I'm sure there's light at the end of one of the passages.

Interesting poem my friend. I'm not sure if the light is good or not. I guess it all depends on whether or not you are going through the tunnel or the tunnel is coming at you.

I think you and I are on the same wavelength. I'm working on something about electricity, myself.

It all depends how 'turned on' I am, I guess!

For me, this creates an ambivalent environment where I have to question the light at the end of the tunnel. Frankly, I don't know what the answer is :)

Is this intentional:
"air might have been be disbarred"
Or should it be:
"air might have been disbarred"?

World So Wide

Love how you question what that light at the end of the tunnel may represent. Most assume it to be a good light or a way out. But it could simply be another choice with no intrinsic value yet. How we move toward the light affects its value too.

Great post!
