There is more than one way of looking at things, isn't there?
Hi Megan... yep, it's true... different perspectives at different times of life. Thanks for stopping by = )
I love the image in this poem. It is the child in us that is able to work it out.Peace,Milton
What a perfect image -- stale gum stuck on a bedpost -- just says it all. I love when people take the unexpected to make me think, and that's exactly what you've done here :)
mmm nice...felt...a child cares little for its staleness....it can find something good in it yet...smiles.
nice. I like the shift in style there at the end, really a nice and light voice throughout. Enjoyed. Thanks
nice ... children are so much more daring, so much more optimistic ... when and why do we learn to stop seeing life/faith/everything like that?
Ha! Very charming. k.
This is a wonderful image of being STUCK.... Sometimes it seems children are better at becoming 'unstuck' than adults are!
Oh, I LOVE this, Patricia!
Good use of the metaphor of a stale gum stuck on a bedpost ~ Hopefully things can be worked out ~
Great image, Pat. I hope it all works out.
celebrating reinvention the child within us perhaps
Beautiful in its harsh directness
Oh, gross.(I reckon if it elicits a response, it was a successful poem, aye?);-)Blessings.
A penny for your thoughts ...
