Sculpting honey?


Shapes dissolve in moments,

dissappear in the gleaming

sweetness of now–

much like


of you.

    very vivid..and viscous 😉

  2. Perhaps I read too much into it, but I like the double interpretation…either the obvious futility of sculpting honey, or this is simply a very nice way of telling someone they’re a lousy sculptor. 🙂

  3. Amy Jo Fleming Says:

    Lovely, the hidden sweetness in memories of (I am thinking) loss.

  4. tolbert Says:

    love this…concise and beautifully stated…the message, unlike honey, is bittersweet. 🙂

    So this is my response to your poem

    Drawing Sparrows

    Endless lines of winter sparrows
    Appear upon my page.
    Yet beautiful
    I should be working
    Except that you have flown
    Away from me.

  6. Beautiful words 💚
    Thank you for enlighting my ordinary metro journey today !! ♡
