Pain


Close your eyes, have no fear
the thorns of life can't touch you here
breathe deep, breathe long
silver birch whitens there
the creaking wooden rocking chair
breathe deep and breathe long
don't worry, it will soon be gone

Carry on Tuesday

silver birch, the reference confused me, the images are wonderful, and the analgesia it promises is enticing.

Actually the silver birch is an inside reference, there is one outside my granny's hospital window where she is now. This was sort of for her...
Thank you for the lovely comment :)

Lovely sticky desert plant. I love them all. Is it the plant seducing the little lovely? I think it lies.
