Handmade Monday comes round again.


It’s all so wonderful because of the dreams,
But in reality, not as it seems.
Our eyes deceive us whilst looking at this,
Nothing is seen that our minds want to miss.
When your heart is involved and holds hard to that dream,
It’s rose tinted glasses that scan the scene.
If only all truths were so easy to hide,
And the less salubrious side be denied.
Would ignorance make life more palatable?
Could we really be so gullible?

Please follow this link and look at all the other Handmade Monday Offerings.


  1. You are a very talented lady. I can't write poetry as English is not my first language so I always admire people who can.

  2. Oh an ideal world Carol, roses round the door everyone getting on with the next. Your poem this week is very good, still waiting for a book.... lol

  3. A very deep and thoughtful ditty this time Carol, would love to know what you were thinking of as you wrote it.


  4. I love your little ditties. I often wear rose-tinted glasses!

  5. Ignorance may indeed make life more palatable. Lovely poem
