Photo A Week: Neglected

Is it neglect that rendered me so useless,
set my joints to collapsing – now a heap?


That which we no longer tend to,
loses lustre, less profit to reap…

old mustang

When we store our dreams in corners,
time usurping promises, visions asleep…


Cherishing is what’s needed, for self, for hopes,
for environment: the fallout for neglect too steep.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
