BLACK SHEEP - TOO LATE FOR CONTEST


black sheep of the flock covers herself in white paint silent deception ... when she starts bleating sound arouses suspicion others are wary storm clouds gather dark face exposed by the rain deception revealed 7/22/19

This is really a deep, well-written senryu, Jan. The proverbial wolf in sheep's clothing. ~ Guess I ought to know in Chicago

The 'black sheep' tend to be the most interesting people to talk to. Have a great day my friend.

So that is why Trump hangs kids in cages, i.e., waiting for raindrops in the desert to wash the colour away? Well done! Aloha! Rico

we all have masks dear poet, the one we show strangers, the one we show friends, the one we show those we love, the one we hold for ourselves,

oh so true Frederic, sadly as i have found to my cost that we uncover the masks of those who we held in high esteem to know everything was a lie:-( hugs jan xx

i, too, am a black sheep....seldom absent of emotion, often deprived of sleep....why should care be a journey too many find too steep....but as long as i have Breath, your friendship, i will surely keep....i do apologize for my absence, but so much loss hit me so fast that i just needed some time to just think and see if i could rekindle my inspirations....i hope you understand my dear friend....
