Random poetic post

You never told me

when you were a baby

you tipped a metal

boiling kettle

over your right hand.

It was badly burnt.

And so I have learnt

that that is why the skin there

is coarse and has no hair.

It all makes me wonder what other tales might blunder

their way out of this family.

I feel somewhat bad

for not knowing this Dad.

  1. This is beautiful and I love the image there are so many stories inside each person which makes them so fascinating to get to know and what I love best is that there is always more to learn
