Tasting of dried old crumbs
voices tumbled around the drum
of my head.

Scented sweet pink posies of roses
swirling and curling my fingers
and toes.

Moulded pages of youth and age
clowns mask hide
the crying sage.

It's not easy to describe a mixture of sentiments in just a few come up with something deep and colourful yet sad and end up with this beauty is surely a work of art and gift of words.teddybear
Hi, Redex,
...clowns mask hide the crying sage. There is much hidden behind masks; but, to envision a crying sage is true sadness. Thanks for sharing.

Redex, your poem is 'Hawt' laugh

It's like you've taken a leap up Redex it sounds really good when read out loud 'crumbs' and 'drum' 'posies' and 'roses'
I get the more serious side to it though, I think it comes in waves maybe connected to our moods etc?
purple heart teddybear thumbs up
