The up and down of beating drums are heard across the lake
As falsehood twists the message and the drummers take no break.
The solid door, self-righteousness, defends. It’s locked to win.
Convinced that truth rests safe inside is where truth can’t get in.

  1. In a lifetime, we are fortunate if we improve our listening and communicative skills.

  2. I really enjoyed this piece. The photo you use is perfect. Symbolism of 2 trees – one leaved, the other not. Each with limb reaching toward the other yet not touching. And of course, the empty bench. Excellent!

    Thank you for following my blog 🙂
