one's secrets
can drip like wax
into the canals of
perked ears.

    Do you mean that it's heated and runny, or that it hardens and remains but a secret? It's a shame that it took foul weather to bring back to your writes, John...I'd always enjoyed reading them! Hope things are picking up and pulling back together for you! Keep well.....Mikki :)

    Awesome statement made here, John. My ears are perked and ready to absorb the secrets. This is a new form for me and I like the way you work in it. Love, Carolyn
