Drifting


Drifting off centre
Like a line off the middle
A paler shade of blue
And a square peg in a round hole
Highlights perfection
And all its flaws.

    The whole world is drifting off course….May the light shine brightly and shove out the darkness. Enough is enough! Happy weekend TL…VK 🙂

      Yes, we are slightly off-centre, VK, but I think we’ll start realigning very soon. You have a fabulous weekend too! 🙂

        Your choice of words amused me…Slightly off center huh? More like six feet under for now. We will realign one day though, just gonna take time 😦 VK

    Excellent words for the image Tom… And I am very familiar with the feeling of a square peg in a round hole… 🙂

      Thanks, Sue.
      And yes, it’s an odd feeling, that one… but no matter how square we feel, we’re still exactly in the centre of our own Universes and we can control how our surroundings affect us… if we choose to, that is! 😊

        Exactly… Sometimes its better not to fit anywhere other than our own centres Tom… 🙂 ❤

      Hehehe! Everything’s off centre.
      The horizon… the Moon… the reflection of the Moon… the lighthouse in the Moon’s light.
      In real life, I suppose that would be natural, Icewolf, but for a creation, it’s just a tad off.
      According to my Inner Critic…

        🤣I will add the Inner Critic to my list Tom Astraeus 😂 There is always room in the Chariot of Fire🔥 for one more Inner! That will e plain why I didn’t see the flaws😄 – I’m permanently off-centre so everything would look perfectly natural and normal to my off-centre eyeballs!😅

          I think it’s always better to be slightly off centre… it allows leeway for perfection.
