Eggshells - Poem by Carsten Thomsen

With smiles
fragile as eggshells
we tiptoed around
everything of importance

Settling for
safe
mundane
topics

Like last week’s news
and the color of your dress



Indifferent & yellow.

    I tend to act like that now with my grown-up children, do you think they're getting their own back? (Report) Reply

    The poem is dynamic in the sence that puts in confrontation the delicate, fragile and mundane things against the matters of importance. With smiles. Nice piece.
