Re-do of the Red Wheelbarrow:

The Black Chalk Board

so much

depends

upon a black

chalk board

covered with

equations

beside the gray

waste basket.

METAPHOR

I know, I know, metaphors rule

but their birth is often Caesarian.

Is your life a sandbox or a boxcar?

A crapshoot? A bird cage?

A leaf  or is it a harp?

Or a stage, maybe a sand dune?

A beached sea shell or a chapel?

Ooh! A chapel! I like that one.

Count me in.

Late Night Thoughts

Published August 11, 2016 by Nan Mykel

child red hair pix              It just occurred to me how vulnerable humans are–physically, but even moreso  emotionally. Maybe emotionally is not the right                       word–I mean sensitive to slights, to being discounted (a word I learned in psychology),  ignored,  being made fun of, mimicked,   belittled. Perhaps all these terms refer to the same thing: vulnerable to being hurt. Is anyone impervious to being emotionally hurt?   Some have a stoic front, counter-aggressive, hardened defenses.  The image that  comes to me is of one with a shield which “slings  and arrows” bounce off of.   I’ll have to think some more on this.         (Photo Pixabay)
