One Word, Two Ways: Ferocious

Effort for Distraction
By Josephine Miles

Effort for distraction grew
Ferocious, grew
Ferocious and paced, that was its exercise.

Effort for distraction strained,
Legged in the hour-like single stretch
Its heels and sight to feel, so slit its eyes.

Effort without effort or with
Greatest possible effort always centered
Back in the concentrated trough where lies

The magnet to the filings,
The saw tooth to the tongue,
The turn of life to a returning life.

By all the traction of mind and spin of spirit
Having gained grasp gasped to bear it,
Having got ground groaned, furious title holder.

Paced and cried, so sore for a different direction, grew
Ferocious, grew
Unkind to strength that gave it strength to grow.


Ferocious to me equals animal prints and I am a sucker for animal print (especially leopard). I do realize when over used, animal print can be tacky and played out, but when used every now and then, I can really dig it. Check out my favorite animal print things:

  1. I’ve supposed that least 4947214 times. SCK was here

  2. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and
    also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it
    yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing,
    it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one
    these days.

  3. It’s going to be ending of mine day, however before
    end I am reading this wonderful paragraph to improve my knowledge.
