Love II

Love

This is my second post in a series called Love that is
evolving through flowers.  As corny as it may sound,
Love is the key to any recovery starting with love of self.
And what could be closer to self than Nature.
So I’ve started with the beautiful blooms I’ve encountered.
I imagine it will progress in time, migrating to other living things.
So keep a lookout for at least one Love post per week.

Wisdom II

Out in the open sun in my eyes
cameras pointed at me they think I’m wise
please no more questions about the dead
or love and money simply swivel your head

Please bring me a newt or a couple of mice
a fat little bunny would really be nice
I don’t know that much but I know what I like
I’m tired of daylight I’m going on strike

second stanza courtesy of Jeff Egan of Chicago
I invite you to add lines to my poems if so inspired via comments and will post my favorites with permission

Serenity II

sleepless
in the night
a prayer
no respite
a cabin
by the shore
a breath
crimson leaves
Serenity

Identify

a bolt of lightning
a beating heart
a piece of art
no censor
write it down
there’s no frown
