Savvy Poem – Tangle Tight

Unravelling into middle age and out again. A ball of wool wound up tight, neat, fixed for a while. Catching, snagging, pulling, loosening and tangling. One great mass of stuff.

She is her own fairy godmother, her own fully-formed creation.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, November 2019 Image by WikimediaImages from Pixabay   Savvy Book – Paris Echo…
