    a baby suckling
    a contented stare
    a mother

    whistle of wind
    wrapping a tomb
    a mother

    Bold, upstanding
    pouring profundities
    a mother

    Shaking stutter
    stumbling soliloquies
    a mother

    Prompt promotion
    on the fast track
    a mother

    Dumped, duped
    distant, departing
    a mother

    Everything, anything
    when all is done
    and said

    my mother

    Hi guys,

    Didn't want to start a new thread for this. Five years on. Still an aspect that p*sses me off. I live in a country where perhaps there's a little more detachment. What would it take for us to actually gain any perspective?
    All I know is, I'm struggling to write anything these days.

    September Perspective

    That morning
    ‘It puts things
    into perspective’
    fell from a million
    ashen lips

    That evening
    a million dogs
    kicked, because
    the wrong football
    team won

    PS; why do the dogs always have to suffer for the human's frustration and frailties? I feel for the dogs.

    I know that struggle well...

    its when our own moments swallow us.

  5. I'm not sure, but are you talking about the general fickleness of the populous? So easily distracted... I'd agree in that case...

    P.S. hope your writing pleases yourself more in coming times. Sometimes things are too confusing to express...not that expression is not there! Be patient with yourself (ha - easier said than done, I know .... I've faith in you)

    Hello all,

    Curtius..the poetry spills from you as always.

    FAL1... Yes, that was what I meant. And these phases are all part of the journey. Take neither the highs nor the lows to heart.
