Drenching Origami Wings

A forehead wrinkles at the pounding of water from the sky It kind of wishes that it could d r o w n out thoughts and feelings but it only serves to m a g n i f y them background droll music to an overthinker's mundane life a fold here, a crease there origami wings that are limp, drenched looking pretty lonely and pathetic under, that, crying, sky, , , , , , , ,

Buko was hard to take for some but a lot of us saw his pain, his rebellion and his genius as a pie baked into perfection. I admire his talent, and I write nothing like him but his style and depth is unusual and interesting as hell. The man so very often wrote the cold hard brutal truth.

Hey Nikko it's been a very long time my friend, many tides have come and gone since we last spoke and as always you never fail to mesmerise me with your words. I hope you and your family are well...David

Oh dear, Nikko !! You have always had a way with your poems that make me want to know if there is more behind the story. I have missed seeing you post your poems, and have neglected to see you here. So glad I found this...and hope all is well. Sending big hugs to you dear one!

A somewhat surreal over the edge mixture of emotions that speak of discontentment within the author's heart. Well written. Emile. #7

wow, Nikko, this is stunning! You are at your best when writing this way. I am gonna wait till later to answer your email. I am not seeing Graceland as I had hoped. (what else is new?) Joe is feeling sick with a cold he caught here and I am just enjoying soup and trying to write poems on my last day here. We will leave in the morning. Take that plane home from Nashville in the afternoon. I hope Snickers and my cat are ok. Luv ya,Andrea

Nikko!!! So this I you? How are you dear friend? I saw your comment on my latest blog and I keep forgetting you have changed your profile name. If I had known that was you I would have replied with much than an idiotic 'thanks"...My only excuse is that I'm getting OLD and forgetful...SO glad to see you posting again and oh my, you are off to a flying re-start. What a poem! More please...

This is a facinating write and very unique... It draws out our thoughts.... It sings to us.
