Too small for a speedy swim

  1. Great one: Thinking from an animals perspective.

    I think we humans are your carp. Our cities are the pond. The world is the big lake. Nice perspective, grandpa 🙂

  3. A comment on the human condition too!

    Dear Sir, you are so kind to me. you read and press like button on my stuff. I am trying to beat the bad in me by the good in me, it is not poetry nor elegant or sophisticated. it is that which compels me to be mindfull and to not wallow in my self pity and to give positive until the stars come home in my heart and mind. otherwise I would deconstruct myself entirely. Your kindness and dissregard (in my case) to good poetry does not go un noticed.

      I’m so much pleased whenever I hear from you because I’m then assured of someone existing in this world who is trying to live a better, higher quality life. I learn a quite lot from you. Let’s make effort together.
