What do you see # 165 – Circles

Image credit; Cottonbro studios Pexels

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows the silhouettes of a man and woman facing each other. In the background there are black and white concentric circles.

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from from “Parallax” by Nancy Cunard: keys, hearts, settles, broods, steps, creeps, smoke, silence, sleep, door, stair, friend

I give you the key to my heart

There was silence at the start

My friend every step of the way

As we settle down we can sway never apart

We fight, we make up like circle

No smoke but life’s a sparkle

Creeping in and out of the door

Faith, hope, love, trust and so much more round the circle*
