We

only

See the things

We want to see

Surviving  and breathing with blinders on

Unwilling to look under layers formed

Weak spots on show

Concealed by

Blinders

Worn

(#Tetractys)

Frank is hosting at dVerse poets pub today. The theme is odes, poems of praise–praising whatever, any or no form.

Tetractys, a poetic form invented by Ray Stebbing, consists of at least 5 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 syllables (total of 20).

Author’s Note: to be wearing blinders = to be able only to see things one way and unwilling or unable to consider other possibilities
