Peripheral ME

Salty water wells into the stream
Brackish prism through which I see
Hugging the road that sets you free
Focus forward, peripheral disappears from the scene
Making transparent all that lies to the sidE

Oh! This is AWESOME! What a great poem! I am envious - poetry does not come easily to me. You have a gift!

My favorite part is bolding the M and the E, so that when I read the last line, "making transparent all that lies to the side" is indirectly the "me"...rather that directly, you are the "me" that has been blocked from the forward (perhaps selfish) focus.

Nice work!
