Kicking up wishes


Kicking up wishes
Dreams to the sky
A field full of hopes
Weeds will not die

Seedlings of longing
Wonder and whims
Blowing intentions
Desires on the wind

Fantasies floating
Realities soon
Joy deeply planted
More sunshiny blooms

For disheveling such sweet

And wee abodes,

So  from now on I’m not

Pulling up the weeds, no,  I’ll

Just leave them alone.

The day the
Ladybird died,
A sunflower cried.
His soul was so downcast

His poor, sunny heart was crushed,
For his whole life he had entrusted
His golden petals to her gentle touch.
Then for his tiny beloved,
His stem snapped
With oozing sap
And scattered
Petals, alas.
And so it is
With death
