Archive Sunday – Take Caution

beware inimical untruths tastily sweet

cameo dramas that result in a dead heat

stories with meaning that take a back seat

wisdom the judgment for a dutch treat

the bargain of balance doesn’t miss a beat

beware creative energy without a heartbeat

  10. This is so true about creating (at least for me): “beware creative energy without a heartbeat”. I love this idea.

  11. Your line about ‘Dutch Treat’ is very important. Especially for teens and spreading Hepatitis. We do not need to fear everything, but caution is always a good thing to have.

    I wonder though how long it will take before we can safely hug or shake hands…

    • I agree, Jules, caution is a good thing to have. No clue how long it will take – perhaps, depending on where one lives. Guidelines and rules not consistent and not one size fits all.
