Left Hand : Hard Time

Updated on May 9, 2012

A canary in a cage in a cave

I inhale cautiously

My belly aches I eat nauseously

I take baby steps with big feet

Obviously I cannot escape

Or ever be free

A bag of skittles and Ice tea

Life is sweet

Can I breathe?

I smudge ink

Consequent of left

Hand penmanship

Asleep on a moon crescent

Thought it was a dream

Woke up in the present

We hover above love

Levitate into heaven

My writers palm does retrace

All of my lofty thoughts

Archives in space

Caught in a waterfall current

Ashes cascade into waves

      I'm liking this one too, the title grabbed me, since I fell recently and scrunched (no other word for it) my right arm, I've had to write with my left for about a month now. "Canary in a cage in a cave" what an amazing image to start with. Regards, snakeslane

      A very good read, Innuentendre, really interesting. Did you know that President Obama is left handed, along with Clinton, George H W Bush, Reagan, and Ford. Mmm, very interesting indeed. Ha.
