Under layers of survival
And dangers above
Safe in beds of denial
That chafe and callous us enough
To deflect when the rains come
A fine write Lorna.
Erm, I was just going to bed (was I?).
Do shut up Orchi, says Fido. lol.
You're only 5 hours ahead of me so that's called a "nap" I think........Fido doesn't sound sleepy at all.....
A masterpiece of short-line poetry - such a penned truth for most of us too dear Lorna - this has to be one of your best and is now in my list of real faves - -- and yes
a Cohen number too - well wow what more could I need today. Thanking you dearly.
You are the sweetest!
Such true words Lorna, we hope they can be deflected into harmony one day.
Just like Orchi I'll never be able to sing a note so you'll have to do the harmonizing Andy!
