The year of the truth

Coeur d’un Poète, of The Writer’s Corner, was kind enough to feature Wibble the other day on the ‘Follower Spotlight Series‘, which I would abbreviate to ‘FSS’ if it didn’t sound like air leaking from a tyre.

on my name, a fame worth forgotten.
It’s sum is no more than rotten fruit
best trashed and abandoned without pardon.
I cannot rise up with certainty
if I am not living my days in truth.
If truth is not what I live daily,
then I cannot have it told so moot.

Truth is the light, both seen and hidden,

It is the beauty in which all are smitten,
taken to the place where we all can thrive.
