Because I write

29 Nov

Smiles cloak sadness

sorrow hides joy

calm contains a storm

fire disguises ice.

My words are not always

a true barometer

of  my mood

nor an honest camera

to faithfully capture

the moment.

    Fleeting frozen moments…clouds on windy skies. How could one catch the infinite ?
