week 208 ~ what’s fixed always will be broken

with 24 comments

what’s fixed always will be broken
and what’s now new will soon get old
and where the time goes no one’s told
me I guess some things aren’t spoken
of down the rabbit hole again
my friend and who knows where we’ll land
this time stick your head in the sand
but the days march on relentless
you ask and if I had to guess
I’d say entropy will expand


entropy: the degree of disorder or uncertainty in a system

  1. Ah…the poem reminds me of a discussion I had not too long ago with my friend…we concluded that entropy will expand also.

  3. What’s fixed will become “was once broken”. Though might not be as good as new – that’s imperfect – but life is never perfect in the first place. The mistakes and lessons learnt are what makes life colourful and this signifies growth in us. I enjoyed the uncertainty and disorder in the system. Keep it up!

  5. Inevitable maybe, is entropy, but we can make some fine words with it, like you do here!

  11. Reblogged this on INTO THE BARDO and commented:
    Mandolinist, composer, educator and writer Marilynn Mair, posts a poem on her blog once a week. It’s always a treat: sonnet, villanelle, decima, rondeau, or pantoum … It’s an event I look forward to. This one is from her 208th week of blogging. Jamie Dedes

    • Thanks, Jamie! The poem formatting seems to have disappeared though– could you fix that?


      October 22, 2012 at 7:56 am

      • No. They have to click through to see the correct formating. Reblogging doesn’t allow for it. Sorry … There have been a number of click through those, judging by the stats.

        Thanks for a fabujous poem.

      • Thanks for the re-blog!
