What do you see # 55 – In his defense

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “As imperceptibly as grief” by Emily Dickinson: grief, summer, away, distilled, drew, dusk, courteous, grace, guest, wing, escape, light

With grace so balancing

Distilled light

Escape from grief summer away

Guest courteous traveling

On his plight

From dusk to dawn his breakaway

With his wings so grappling

From this height

Draw his strength words to convey

From day to day battling

High as kite

Finally no more masquerade

In his defense raveling

He’s all right

Balancing his act everyday

So he could be gambling

Without fright

His own way Monday to Sunday*
