Poems don't count. People do. Words; syllables; letters aren't you ~ only windows to look through. Stained glass distorts truth.
The dribble is a brief poem consisting of exactly 100 letters (not 100 characters—spaces and punctuation are not counted).
The name of the dribble is derived from the micro-fiction form known as the drabble, a story consisting of exactly 100 words. [READ MORE]

What a creative perspective. I find that my words are me in many different, exaggerated ways. Where there’s light, there is darkness. 🙂
sure – but sometimes I just want to drill down to my core
Really beautiful so true too. Wisdom in exactly 100 letters. Wow, impressive David. ❤️🤗
❤ thanks, Joni ❤
My pleasure David. ❤️🤗
People first, then poetry?
seems reasonable, no?
Haha, spoken like a poet. 🙂
so good but I’ll see through “rose colors glasses” any day…..
it gets me up everyday…
but yes, people matter most💖💖
💗 Cindy 💗 – I can practically see your rose-colored glasses perched on your nose!
hahahaha that’s funny .. me too💖
maybe I’ll buy some as a reminder💖
I thought I commented yesterday David ….. maybe it went to Spam?

It didn’t go to spam, but I avoid approving and responding to comments on Shabbat… the blog posts you see posted on my blog on Friday nights and Saturdays are scheduled posts – I write them before Shabbat and then schedule them to be posted in advance.
Awww of course! Hope it was a nice one 🙏🕯
💘 Karima 💘
it was! thanks 🙂
I know it would not be a dribble…but just thinking,,,”Stained glass distorts truth.”
For me (who has a home full of it) stained glass turns light into magic:)
yes, stained glass can be stunningly beautiful – and magical, Karima
I always thought that stained glass enhanced and beautified life when looking through it. You can see that my glass is always half-full.

I love this introspective look! Even if what I see is only through a glass darkly! We reveal ourselves as shadows of our words….
