Crumbs

compass_01

a trail of crumbs

an A to Z

a broken twig

a cup of tea

a torn photograph

a letter from mum

the faulty map

and rule of thumb

the careless slap

that leaves you numb

will help find your way home

.

an old postcard

a wedding ring

a baby’s rattle

the songs you sing

a daisy chain

and bloody nose

but don’t complain

about the blows

the music that you cannot hear

the feeling that you’ll disappear

if you can’t find your way home

.

    1. Thank you Martin - very much so. The sensation that you may have lost yourself somehow / somewhere leads to frantic searching and a great deal of turmoil.
