Death on a spring day
Outside all is bright and clear
He feels none of it
He dreams of fond times
Love    the dream world puppeteer

    A touching piece, Daver. He is so wrapped up in puppeteering his past, that he doesn't see his present. At least he will have smiley, and momentarily content puppets? Easy to say, 'cut the strings and move on', but it's no simple task. Wishing the best to you and yours! Love, Mikki

    Very interesting last line, David. the dream world puppeteer. You should see the new horror movie Cabin in the Woods. A very Different kind of puppeteer!!

    If you want to see a real horror show, you should see the inside of our house - not fit for human habitation. Cats love it, though. daver

    I'm fine. I'd started this one out as a transfigured night sort of thing, and ended up with just a few lines. daver
