Life’s layered people
Say one thing mean another
We are born naked

    ... and naked we go as well! Profound senryu! Some layers soothe while others deceive... keep digging for the better layers in people :)

    :) Sometimes we forgo that because we like what we see too much to be cautious! Thanks for the post, Richard.

    Nice phrase, your "layered people". Very true of the greater percentage of people. I like, Eileen. Licia :-)
