Squawking Measure

Wrap your crazy
around you
and cuddle
in its warmth.

Squawking voices tend
to measure brilliance by their
inadequacy.

We crave to feel the best and so keep measuring everything in vain...Very well said Susie!!

Yes, I've known a few squawkers. I also wrap my crazy around and cuddle every chance I get!

And often, the louder they squawk, the more inadequate they are!! http://wabisabipoet.wordpress.com/2013/07/11/measure/
