Our Daily Scaffold

We’re but a game of hide and meat
deception fog bequeathed by heat
to cheat the sheath of self by soul
to eat and propagate our goal

We rise in wonder, wander off
our reason tries with labored laugh
to catch our lies of lip within
and patch our eyes of if and when

    I was in anticipation because of the title to see a blog on the ongoing work on the outside of your house. The scaffold has been there for months it seems.

    So was pleasantly surprised by the poem instead. A very good one by the way.

    Love the photos as always… but sometimes I forget to say.

    it’s the scaffold we daily build ourselves and our world view with.
