A new week and a fresh, blank page? Don't mind if I do. Freshness = possibility = hope. Anyway, this is for someone who's been a great help after a mostly rotten week; someone who would most likely be irritated if I mentioned them by name, who often doesn't realise all the good that they do, and who probably doesn't even realise that it's about them. Confused? You will be after another 4-verse haiku [!] 'HOT PAIN' My mind is on fire And no thought remains unburned: An infernal blaze. Hope? It melts like ice; Platitudes do not douse flames: I wish it weren't so. But keep faith I must; I welcome gentle wisdom And I always will. Bless the firefighters: They know just how bad it gets And always help out.
