He will conquer

The image shows a person standing on top of a rock, his feet straddling two projections. In the background, you can see the skyline and down below some houses.

solo traveller
striding through life’s long journey
youthful confidence
casts trepidation aside
to reach the ultimate goal

he seizes the day
glorying in his triumph
all demons vanquished

  1. My word, Chris! 😳 My demons wouldn’t be vanquished if I were to stand like that all the way up there! I sometimes have issues standing on the normal level ground!

  2. After reading Liz’s comment about photoshopping I had to go back and look at the photo more carefully. As a Photoshop expert (🤣🤣) I can see how it could possibly be. Because if not, then where was the photographer standing?🤔 surely somewhere as dangerous as the subject was.

    • Thanks, Jude 🙂 I’ve been trying my hand at more syllabic poetry, guided by Colleen Chesbro’s ‘Wordcraft: Prose and Poetry’ book which I’m working my way through. How happy was I to find some of your work – like unexpectedly bumping into a friend! Your piece entitled ‘Fantasy’ made me smile with your reference to JKR 😉
