WHAT?  (Rictameter – for Andrea Dietrich)

I’m lost!
Look all around
There’s nothing familiar
Except those distant tall buildings
Oh    but they must be miles and miles away
Can’t remember how I got here
This must be a nightmare
But if it’s not?
I’m lost!

    Clever! ...and isn't it amazing how, in this rictameter, you created a visual of the sky scrapers of the distant city line?

    I think we all feel this way at times. Nice dedication to Andrea. I see you've been exploring various forms. I've enjoyed reading the results. Keep on writing. Thank you for your kind comment. Karen

    I work amongst the tall buildings! First in NYC and now in New Joisey! I'm doing okay Daver. Adjusting to a new office in a new State this week. How are YOU doing, my friend? :-)

    This fits good on the one who has just lost his head. I am sure you are confused . May be you are asleep. How ever you end up. I am sure you are all right . Nice read this morning.
