Not nonsense


sounds similar to new ants,
and if you add is it would be a nuisance.
If you speak in plural, of nuances,
you could be referring
to your new aunt sis,
or even saying
“’noon, sis.”

This sounds like nonsense,
but it’s true that a nuance
gives a clue to what you mean.

                1. Ha! You may be right. I must be the most eligable woman in this block of almost 40 flats. I the eyes of the more lively guys light up when I appear. I’m not being big-headed – it’s just that the competition is a bit… limited 🙂

                  1. I wouldn’t put yourself down. You’re intelligent, beautiful and you ‘dance with yourself’ (Billy Idol) Funny how our perception of self is based upon the vulnerable young version of ourselves instead of what other people see.
