Our Glass


Through the same glass another sand sags dragging excuses thick extensions unwelcome going on going by going down constant ripples without reflections that engulf this soul Somebody find me, Anybody

    Yes, the sand of time runs inexorably towards the end/fulfillment - it is our perception which validates it. Love, Suzette
