There ought to be a law.
Linda So well said in so few words!Pamela
Similar to the direction I took as well.
This is so zen like in structure and spirit.

I love the image of "brackish wells" also. This reminds me of the old Twain quote about "better to remain silent and be thought a fool..."
"reflection / before / you / speak" - Well said! If only we could get so many others to walk in these shoes.
I like this, especially the line:"half-truths, brackish wells, barren words".I saw the way the words took shape on screen, counted the syllables in each line, and understood what this is -- a mirrored fib poem. Very clever use of the form. Well done.-Nicole
Nicole,I've enjoyed playing around with the Fib form. Thanks for the comment.Linda
Great fib! It's a cool structure, no? Works really well with the subject you've chosen, I think -- contains it and gives it strength at once.
