happen whatever the weather

    1. We find sanctuary within each other. We know this as children but through careful teaching we forget.

  2. Me, too, kiddo. Right now, backyards are the best place to find it. Smiles. So nice to see you at Poets United!

  3. compassion and backyards, yep, I like that especially as they can be a place to escape to. I guess our poetry blogs are a little like back yards. I did enjoy your poem, Rene and, oh, yes I also enjoyed reading on your blog too, quite humourous in places.

  9. I like Julian's thought that our backyards are little sanctuaries. Your words are brief and succinct!
