One can’t help but feel old
so much is going on
getting more difficult to find
     joy
          decency
               harmony
We have just seen so much
daily we are assaulted
with images that can’t be
     unseen
          unfelt
               understood
Chaos is the flavour of the day
discord is the way to go
bleakness is the current state of mind

Believe me, I know what you mean, up close and first hand. You can't un-remember some things. Keep it up, MC.

Exquisite art, excellent verse.  I wish things were different.

Hello 514,  some days I'm afraid to open the newspaper.  Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts.

Hi FM, everything just seem ass backwards.  Thank you for dropping in.

Your painting is exquisite.  That red bit in the center among all the cool tone just draws my eye!

Yep. The state of things political and social is so appalling it's hard to pay attention. But I feel anxious and unsteady either way. The emotional toll will be equalled in lost quality of life as things progress.

What makes me feel that way is absolutely political. I like the painting.

FM, sadly you’re so right and I don’t see any major changes on the horizon.

Roisi, thank you so much for those kind words. I too am feeling very anxious about the state of so many things.

Kosh, the political climate sucks! Thank you for coming by.


Buddha Guy, merci pour vos gentils mots mon cher ami.
