Bitter At All Winged Creatures



Bitter at all winged creatures,

I want to board up the sky;

Expunge the ones

Who dare to fly.


Then die.

I'm feeling a bit bitter myself today. I'm hoping some sweet tea will help. Really I just want to fly too.

Have a great Wednesday.

Do you need a hug?

I think you might need chocolate. That will help:)

Strong impact with this compact photo. Love the words you chose to get the image across.

You are going to love me now that I went to a writing seminar yesterday, now I think I know what I'm talking about. Here goes: You used very few words but picked two words that carry heavy weight, expunge and die, and it packs a much bigger punch than if you had used 10 stanzas with all kinds of clever wording. Absolutely brilliant.

Board up the sky.

Shay, Shay, Shay, Shay, Shay, Shay. You got it going on, in oh so many ways.
