  1. Well, I’m sorry, but I have to disagree cause I write political poetries and others that discuss philosophical concepts. Your quote is luinguisticly appealing, but the concept that it represents is too general…

    • Don’t be sorry for thinking differently. It’s not unexpected, in fact I was wondering when it would happen. Thank you so much for kindly expressing your opinion, it is always welcome.

  2. Now this made me smile and truly puts a little bounce in my step as I head out. Perfectly beautiful and serene…there is a world that politics will never be able to invade ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. When I first saw this picture, I thought I was looking at a catepillar (I have no idea why – lol!). So, naturally, I started thinking of how poetry or politics could be transformed to make them more compatible…

    Then I read the comments about a lizard, and went back and looked. Sure enough, it’s a lizard in the photo…

    So… um… I guess I got nothin’ to say… unless I could work with the “cold-blooded” angle. Hmm… ;D
