Shifting Sands

Shifting Sands

Shifting sands
have no empathy
for the confused
An arid expanse
Misunderstood
complicated
and layered
Unsurmountable
arduous
Exhausting
body and soul
A cage-less prison
with no escape

    Dear Christine,
    I do hope you are familiar with the old saying, “It’s easier to ask for Forgiveness than Permission”???๐Ÿ˜Š
    So, this is Me asking for Forgiveness, in advance!! ๐Ÿ˜ข I will explain after I tell you how Awesome Your – Shifting Sands is and how powerful and magical your words are, especially for me! Your words painted a masterful portrait!!! Bellissimo!

    So, I’ve been a Bad Boy and need to beg your forgiveness for letting your words tempt me and my words into an “Unapproved Duet”!!! ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

    Your words are strong with me, Dear!!! I want you to know I’m very remorseful, but can’t lie that I’m not also thrilled that I was Overwhelmed by your words!! Your words help make me a better writer, Dear! I hope you will still speak to me???๐Ÿ˜ข If you might like to see what I did, in spite of it all, let me know via email.
    xoxo
    Chuck

    I love the concept of the cage-less prison. It speaks to us all.
