For Mo Mo, in Indonesia. A flowerIn a city I have never seenIs no less a flowerThan those in my own backyardAre no less flowersThan the finest roses in the most prestigious of gardens grown Each has come from a seed the sameWhether it fell rough to the Earth or was gently placedJust as each climbs tall as they mightTowards the same shining sun May they be seen and lovedKnowing thatThough there are those which will fall beneath wheels and feetEach has a place and a purpose

Happy World Poetry Day, everyone. When it rains,I can smell it in my heart,Aching now,The end of an era. The music is loud in the car stereo;It does not matter the song,The noise is soothing,Anything to drown out the silence. I remember Spring,Waking up to new light,The night before but a memory,The day ahead a story to be written. When it rains,I think of you,Wherever you are,And I wish you were here. I am tired of such beautiful momentsPassing;What good is birdsong to the empty moon?We are not meant to live alone. I seek solace in a warm bath,A candle … Continue reading When It Rains →
