A Once Supposed Truth
by Dinosaurs in the Flowers

A once supposed truth
is always breaking down somewhere,
with someone.

A little boy interested in dinosaurs
finds out they evolved into birds
and are all around us.

He watches a chicken outside and says,
“I do not want to eat dinosaur eggs
this morning mom.”

      Oh this reminds me of my uncle doing his Sunday radio programs for the local church in my hometown. It's called 'Radio Veritas'. Interesting poem to go with the photo. I often see roosters (apparently evolved from dinosaurs) on top of weather vanes. :P
      According to history, when the romans became Christians they started using roosters for windvanes, and so the bible goes: "Before the cock crows twice, you will deny me three times" (Mark 14:72).

      Great post.That story is so sweet. I recently came across a quote " There are no truths, only stories ". It made me think about the truth of that ;)

      Hé,hé ! la vérité n'est peut-être qu'un mensonge vu, perçu, ressenti, voulu de manière différente... Elle va peut-être pour certains, avec le sens du vent !! Allez savoir !
      Jolie question ! Jolie photo Antonio :)
