SHORTLIES (1)

 

 

When bladder, like the sea, is full

and gravity exerts its pull,

what pleasure when relief’s applied,

thank goodness for the ebbing  tide.

    That ebbing tide is becoming more frequent Michael.

    Ohh, from a hymn 'Immortal love, forever full' there is a line 'A never ebbing tide'. Erm, no relation to this theme. Oops!
    You know Bradder (Bradley) Berles?!

    When old age creeps up on us, inevitably
    and those thundering steps - to salvage
    what pride we have left
    become a nightly routine,
    I'll remember your last line:
    'thank goodness for the ebbing tide'...
    lol, good write Michael, those menacing twisters in your picture are a fitting image of the pressure forces depicted in your write
