Be weary of how you are understood

da5ec0f73a1d0a745155da12928afbfbDo not fall in love with a writer

unless you are willing to open yourself

to the inevitability of their description

for at first with the best harvest

the vintage will be sweet and lingering

with notes of honey and wild

as sure seasons turn

their fingers pressed on your pulse

will catch the days of sorrow

blurred behind storm

and reading yourself

translated

isn’t for the faint hearted

or those without touchstone

it is like a ship wrecked out to sea

blown far off course

losing compass

be weary of how you are understood

when the painter dips their brush

seeking inspiration

  1. This is a beautiful piece! So True!! The cider has more bite the longer it ferments!

    Thank you for checking in with my blog. I was wondering why I wasn’t seeing your posts. Somehow your site got unfollowed. Looking forward to reading more of you posts. Dwight

  2. It’s such a fine line to walk. Between allowing true honesty/good art and exposing or possibly hurting the person you love. It is very difficult. Journaling helps but for me that leads to poetry. It’s a dilemma
