Hiding Behind New Dust

When we remove the dust from our lives we always see what beauty we had during that life.

Beauty tho\' dust-trapped finds ways through to let shine its attraction and to whomsoever - as does this write dear Nev. with such a spark of beguile behind every line.

A fine write Neville.
Blame me teacher - one said to us \'Sing loud, so as to dislodge the dust from the ceiling\'. So I did - and not stopped yet! lol. I\'m covered in dust now. (Do shut up, Orchi. lol).

This is a class thing i\'m sure.... the only dust i got was on my Airfix kits dangling from the ceiling. The ones my dear brother used to love to aim pieces of folded cardboard at, propelled by an ack ack elastic band.

Reminds me of a woman I know. Stubborn with a tattoo of honest on her body.

Delusion is a disease which can be mended with the medicine of love.

Beyond Broke
dusk arising said:

Many out there are still in need of a repair kit in their later years. I was once deluded enough to consider my heart a repair shop.

Disallusioned, i threw away my tools.

Fay Slimm. said:

Seriously good this concise diagnosis of delusion my friend.............the two final words - \"needy and broken\" brought sad heartache that this state is so familiar today.

Goldfinch60 said:

Those moments in time gave me some wonderful memories when my lover was by my side but now on my own I am becoming a different person and seeming to become \"free without guilt\".

Los Echoes
MendedFences27 said:

\"Echoes\" of bygone days, now blessed with the freedom of maturity, what perhaps was complicated is now unbound. What was unreachable can now be attained. What were \"just lost moments in time\" can now become moments of fulfillment.
\"Do we,\" \"does it,\" and \"do we,\" again seem like \"echoes\" from those \"lost moments.\"
Beginning and ending on the same refrain brings the concept full circle, and adds another slice of \"Echo.\" A very clever poem, well written and expressed. A retrospective self-inquiry. Made me ponder my own past relations. - Phil A.

Los Echoes
dusk arising said:

Reading others poetry we create a meaning from the familiar in our life.

Today i read this as a driver sat in a waiting room whilst his wife fought for her life in another room after a motor accident. The driver feeling very humble and wishing he could exchange places.

Well that\'s where you took me today. I felt this was written from the edge of feelings. Intriguing and stimulating for my remaining few grey cells.

Freeing feelings from guilt makes former clandestine days full of meaning - - another beguiling poetic situation to contemplate Nev. - and composed so very well .

beautiful rhyme and tone, immersive imagery and crisp clear metaphors,
effortlessly capturing the whimsy in the idyllic scene of carefree childhood it depicts;
such write\'s could easily be tinged by the grating notes of envy - unknowingly, when viewed through eyes that have lived long enough to know the bitterness of regret,
another brilliant write my oh so talented friend!

The calm of this poemed scene passes into a harbouring dance such as I see on days like these in my neck of the woods - sun and your \"tame and tireless waves\" lapping in harmony with little boats - - - - - - a truly inspiring piece of writing mon ami.............x

Picture me, sat on the quayside seeing this exactly as you describe, obligatory spliff between my fingers lest i should be blind to this vision. A smile of contentment across my hungry mouth as the munchies begin to nag.

Took me into a fanciful state of mind as was once so accessible from a certain abuse. But I was there and yes I can picture your playfully happy scene in my minds eye.

Oh i dunno about good for nuthin..... they make a rather satisfying crunch when u squash \'em.

I usually encounter them hiding in the branches when i\'m blackberry picking. Far fewer of them about lately though. Last year i had a wasp nest in the soil beneath my front hedge. I prepared wasp traps as per you tube videos and they just filled up with blue-bottle type flies so i just kept my distance.
I only got stung once which was as a child on the side of my third finger which hurt like hell.

Been stung many a time over the years, mostly by humans.
Bees are lovely, and they give the wife lots of excercise.

ANGELA & BRIAN said:

BRIAN HERE ~ Good Morning Neville. In NATURE & ECOLOGY every living thing has its place and especially WASPS they are an essential part of Natures Cycles & Webs ~ OK they sting but that is part of their defence mechanism ! Visually they add a touch of colour and their NESTS are a MASTERPIECE of High Rise Flat Engineeing built of Wood not Wax !
What good do they do ! WASPS play an impotant role in Pollination - Predation & Parisitism. Without WASPS we would be overun with insect pests and there would be NO FIGS. Some think that would be a good thing ! WASPS pick up YEAST from late season grapes and store it in Winter for the next seasons grapes. So next time you see a WASP ~ DONT kill it but *Raise a Glass* to it AMEN.

Blessings & Peace & Joy
Yours A & B & Smokey ! ! !

Nearly all my long life I have never been stung bu a bee or a wasp but about four years ago I was getting the rotary clothesline in and there was a wasp sitting on top and it stung me as I reached up to get the line down. They hide from you and then get you.!

Loving this short and pithy opinion of stingers that prey on sweet flesh at this time of year - remembering earlier encounters I uttered loud Ouches when reading these words Nev...............x
