The leveler

In the amazing world of blogging, you stumble on words that move or inspire you and that’s what happened when I read the work of george agak from
Sliver of Darkness. Something he said, inspired me to challenge him to write a poem on what he had said and I would do the same. So thanks to George, I wrote “Something happened”  which you can find here: https://chevvy8.com/2017/02/25/something-happened/  His take on what each new day brings  is right here in: “The Leveller” Enjoy and we both welcome your comments. Please check out George’s blog as well. Chevvy.
