A Temporary Escape

I’ve made a few attempts to start this, all of them relating our current situation. It is too awful for a lot of people. Each time I’ve stopped more upset than before. So here’s a different tack, I’m on the escapist route, to run and hide from it all. I’m regressing to happier times for some respite and relief. I wrote this last year during a workshop with the Bealtaine Writers. It was given online for us by Catherine Ann Cullen, courtesy of Poetry Ireland. Take yourselves away then, to your happy place for a while.

Lovely Peter, great sounds in the poem.
You are wise to dwell on the good things.

Grief is experience through the mundane. Simple but powerful. The accompanying image really compliments the poem.

Hi Peter,

A great observation! Social media can be a scary place... I also need to reduce my time there

A great one, Peter, in the context you describe. I don't read social media myself, I doubt my equilibrium could stand it. 'The balance of his mind disturbed' yes, I think it would be.

Yes, gossip is a weapon of mass destruction.

In my business as well as personal life I have zero tolerance.
