Fire-Drawn

I know Yaozu is fascinating, niece,
But please remember,

The moth is drawn to the flame
Not because she understands fire,

But because she does not.

  1. I love this new poem, Paul! Fits perfectly in your upcoming book!

    P.S. – There seems to be some problem with WordPress. It just doesn’t let me like your posts through a web browser and it doesn’t even send me notifications when you posts something. And this, it does, just for YOUR blog :/
