    Mr. Bell is a poet that surely feels life moving, sees the currents of something great flowing all about us. Put simply, I absolutely love his poetry. It is so good, so real. I can only hope for much more to show up here on poemhunter.

Best Poem of R. G. Bell


Home lies that way, somewhere, through the fog,
Down a road I did not ask to be set upon
And most of whose forks were chosen for me
By others no less road-bound than I,
Who find their journey no more worthwhile.

I carry too much baggage, but search for more,
Wish for great tasks while failing small ones,
Pass many milestones, but make no progress.

How long it is to home I only guess.
I have not gone this way before and would not
Know it without the fog. I hope it isn't far,
But somehow begin to fear it is.

Still, distractions let me forget ...

The Bungee Jumpers

I’ll try here to explain
And tell it to you plain,
How their deliberate flings
Can be three different things,
Depending on the view.
(You say you see just two?)
