Cocoon

Close me
Lump me in cocoon
When I don’t want to engage
The outside world today.
Let me out to breathe
Sometimes -
This air is acrid and stinks
Of progress.
Draw me in with a
Thick black brush
So I can juxtapose
Unspoken inhibitions of
Love and of lust.
Capture me
Close me in cocoon
That I might metamorphose,
That I might transform
And transpose
The outside world today.

Cocoon, tells me of what we often need is a rest, to be away from, time to think and recuperate. Then we can better face, when we come out of our cocoon whatever this world has in store.
Pictoresque. Interesting metaphor's use.

Glad to see you here now and then. Superb writing is sorely missing here, so why not take some time off and visit more often? But it is best to stay out of the forum, unless you like kindergarten playgrounds. How is the Fatherland? Warming up now? Best wishes H
