  1. Such a profound way to end the poem with the word ‘Maybe’. Speaks of both hope and uncertainty. I guess that’s how life is – we live, we learn, work, play and hope for the best. Very nice image (collage?) to along with this poem. No eyes, no telling and seeing what’s ahead.

    Hope all is well heading into summer. Tomorrow we are having our third straight day of 30’C. And then it’s back to under 20’C ๐Ÿ˜ฆ And back to high twenties next week ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Thanks again Mabel ๐Ÿ™‚ The face in the collage is of my great grandfather and the rest is of rocks and driftwood washed up on the beach… just as life throws up little surprises/gifts ๐Ÿ™‚ We are having a delightfully coolish end to Spring and I am making the most of it! This weekend is rainy, so I guess I’d better get my writing hat on and do something – I’ve been very slack of late ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care Mabel


      • What a combo for your collage. It looks every bit timeless. Life throws up gifts, we roll along with it ๐Ÿ™‚ It was thunderstorming here today and I got dripping soaked on the way home. On the bright side, 30’C-ish days for most of next week ๐Ÿ™‚ You enjoy your Spring and stay safe ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Sometimes, a fellow human’s audacity, unkindness and brutality truly leave us speechless. Maybe, we will never be prepared fully for a grand reposte, because, in that case, we have to stoop ourselves to his level… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    A thought-provoking piece with a wonderful collage. It is complementing the confusion and the subtle tension of the poem.
