To All the Little People on the Edge of the Promontory

Henri Rousseau Self Portrait from L’ile Saint Louis

lost in the shadows
of self-proclaimed giants
but I like your
company the best.
Often overlooked
looked down on
not a slave to the times
you are not just
a flash in the pan.

    Hmm… I might like a flash in the pan too, maybe a shot of brandy lit on fire. But OK, sure. Rousseau is really great.

    Too often we are ‘lost in the shadows’ until we take ourselves into the light.
    Nice read.
