I See Wishes

I See a Wish

Springtime comes,

With bountiful fields,

With flowering meadows,

With joyful animals.

 

Springtime comes,

With suffacating thorns,

With ferocious storms,

With surrounding weeds.

 

No! Do not think that way!

The thorns protect,

The storms nournish,

And I do not see weeds,

I see wishes.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This one's ok for an inpromptu poem I guess... :-)

WEDNESDAY WED


On that Wednesday we were wed
On that Wednesday we were we'd
Near a windkissed dune by the sea
Crowned by wet dunegrass weeds

Roses Against Weeds

Folder: 
My Everything

 

Our love is a rose

Smelling of sweet seduction

Beautiful, standing out in a bed of thorns

Cherished for being exactly what it is

 

Bold in its ways

Buds of truth, strength, and loyalty

Seeds of hope and faith

Stemmed from the roots of life

 

Blossoming with each day

Defeats the persistent weeds

A rose for every season

Our love never wilting

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The weeds will only marvel at what we've made.

the rye dapple
as the sun
swells ripe apples

Spring
is wildrosing
the rye

WALLFLOWER SHADE

Wallflowers
in the shade
not permitted to

Cinderella ...
banned
from the after
midnight moon

WATERS OF LIFE

For those with
thirst panting
are God-designed
watermelon canteens

For the ants and
bees....
curled leaves...
rain-bearers

and for long
journeys
coconuts...
water carriers
*
WATER ALL

From every stream
and each waterfall
From every lake
and puddle
water's uniting with all

TREES CAN'T SCREAM

Fish can't scream.
Trees can't scream,
when they're axed or
hooked in the stream.
*
GOD DANCES IN ALL
*
God does dance
in each beetle
every ant
all rats and mice
all weeds
every plant.

Immortal Roots

 

Hey there it's me

your Morning Glory

you might think I'm pretty

'til you learn my story

 

early in the day 

I wake up full bloom

showing my colors

pink, purple or blue

 

when the sun shines too bright 

I'll curl up and hide

but on a cloudy day 

I might just stay in sight

 

at first you'll enjoy me 

until you get to know me

then you will find 

that you want to destroy me

 

when you plant your garden

and I start to betray

you'll think me a nuisance 

won't want me to stay

 

for you'll soon discover

as you dig and uncover

my roots are too deep

and I'm not just ground cover

 

with the hope that I'll leave 

you will cut at my roots

but little do you know 

I will just grow new shoots

 

so you'll pull them out

and feel justified

but in the morning you'll see

they have multiplied

 

you'll keep clipping and plucking

and digging and cutting

but I'll keep on growing

and you'll keep on grudging

 

you won't want to resign

so you'll chop at my green vine

but still you will find

that you cannot confine

 

for my roots are so strong

we'll just find a new route

you'll see you were wrong

as they spring up and re-sprout

 

as soon as you think

you have me under control

I'll wrap my vine around you

and take a stranglehold

 

even if you burn me

I will still survive

you'll think you have killed me

but I'll come back and thrive

 

one thing that will work 

I have to admit

if you use the right poison 

I'll finally quit
