a wheel barrow

I hold hands
we turn into a wheel
its like carrying a cart

a person has to unload it
the search for a place
becomes a project

that number on the wall
who will carry that?

Tight, mysterious, deep thoughts in such few words. Well done.

I read sadness and remorse. Very good.

mmmm...drudging through life's hurts and baggage but at least not alone. Love the imagery how holding someone's hand can become the wheel to begin moving through the pain even if you don't where or how to unload it you know you are not alone! Absolutely inspiring and melancholic all rolled into one! Great job!

The enigmatic number on the wall lends this piece some foreboding.

Wish I knew what that Magpie picture was. Am I the only one who can't figure it out? What does it have to do with wheels, root cellars, nukes, etc. that everyone else is writing about? What is that blue thing?

It's astonishing to me how you see unseen things within others- and then can pull these things out and make sense of it all - all the while still keeping the mystery alive.
