A scapegoat's white hope


A sunstroke sunflower yawn in the whirlwind
and a scapegoat scamper with his old wheelbarrow
which is full of manure.

    This is a charming piece Nimal, written in your inimitable engaging style. I love your 'sunstroke sunflower' and your 'scapegoat scamper' with his wheelbarrow of manure. The images are very unusual and appealing and the structure of the poem excellent. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (Report) Reply

    Very surreal. The poet soldiers on in spite of all the difficulties. Helen Keller said, 'Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It's what sunflowers do.'
    Take care, Nimal.

    Kind regards,
