regressive progress

progress gets regressed
but I digress
not one iota from pages
I could decipher.
writing with invisible ink
you coded it too
much precautions
totally useless

Happy New Year to you Gautami - you've started off with yet another enigmatic and powerful piece which is really making me think. I can feel the strength of the person under that invisible ink..Jae

The progress we have known in our lives, is regression, for sure.

i liked this, it had the feel of going round in ever smaller circles - regressive indeed :)

Too much precaution and no one will understand.

creative souls such as yours should never be incumbered by invisible ink. Let it all hang out.

Strong message. Thanks for being a part of the first Sunday 160's of the New Year.

It does take to people TRYING in order to communicate, doesn't it?

Too much coding -- I know what you mean, I think! Happy New Year of poetry writing!

Gautami, Happy New Year! Great start. The invisible ink, the code... signs of that creative frustration we all experience from time to time... at least that's what I got from it.

Your poetry is such that there can be many meanings derived, and that's part of the beauty of your writing. I'm pretty literal, but you have the knack for the ethereal.

Here's mine...

Too much precaution-totally useless.

I never thought of that. I'll be thinking about that because frankly, I'm all about caution.
