Tap

Fresh air and a new plank in place.

New pine replacing the decaying past

Ssst

As the post digger bited the earth.

Moist soil moving

So the solid post stays grounded.

Huff

While the heart gathers for the next effort.

Old posts stay strong

As new planks keep them in place.

Well crafted write. Seems to put everything in order. Maybe that is why Jesus chose to be a Carpenter! Good to see you writing again. Dora say's "hello".

Love the grasping p's, g's and t's as proprophetic, with the first three lines of this piece - Trap, Ssst, Huff, ending with a placement of self, sad, right now.

Hope I typed this right, Peter. :)

Yours,

Stardancer
