The parable of the flowers


The parable of the flowers and the lovelorn man……

She was a perfect beauty. She danced nightly on a stage in Killeen, Texas.  I went nightly and I waited for my tainted beauty to finish her work.  She emulate content and untamed woman. Accepted money for dancing to the Bob Seger and Jim Morrison tunes.

The paragon of nature. Giving us perfect beauty and secret places to rest. Her beauty generously shared and given without demanding payment.

A reflection of winter

Great post from Jem!


I caught an oak’s reflection
in a puddle Friday last
whilst walking in a field
by a tree that I went past

It reminded me that winter

was close as from its branches
all the leaves had gone away

So I didn’t dilly dally
but paused there just enough
to ponder that reflection
of the tall oak there above
