Envious Poem

21 Feb

I’ve been a bit wrapped up with things…..and in the process the poem has been left behind.

So an ode to all things start-up- the forays, the delays…..


You were better off not

Now you have climbed into the sun

Just a bit and burnt! Crisp.


Smiles can hide dents,

but serves you right

For ignoring me


Can you write a word now?

So full of networking you…

Can you be honest again


And natural

Like a bird wrapped up by the sky

Or a dew drop practising its final fall?

    The final line is particularly powerful, but I liked all the unexpected images.
