Majestic, in bloom, in glory!
Full, proud, ever-present?
to the groaning of the grass.
Dancing in the wind
With the brides of breeze.
Gaily, pouting, showing of!
‘How beautiful I look!’
Thought the flower.
‘And how quickly you fade…’ scoffed the grass.
‘You’re just jealous of my beauty!’ the flower screeched.
‘No, am not,’ replied the grass, ‘it’s just the law of nature.’
Well… flowers fades, beauty fades (in humans), and I reckon the flower in the this short poetic musing is apparently enjoying itself (?) And the grass is ‘apparently’ telling ‘it’ off. More like life, be happy for those who are happy and show compassion for the weak, that’s just my take on it.
My kids are on holiday in a few hours, a week early, their school is constructing extra classrooms due to the ever-expanding London population. I’m not dreading it, they would hopefully, help me read my mountainous manuscripts! I now have a whole month off from my grumpy editor, Barbara! (she’ll probably kill me if she reads this!)
I appreciate your friendship guys, may you find peace this weekend. Enjoy today dear friends and have a great weekend!
NP: I rarely do this but do buy a few copies of ‘Tales OF Five Lies’ if you love psychological thrillers, you can get it on this link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tales-Five-Lies-Sandra-David/dp/147932132X/ref=tmm_pap_title_0 or just click on the cover on the sidebar. It’s less than a pound, and a quick summer read and if you’re in the States, it’s less than 99cents, or better still, go for the full length novel, which a reviewer described as, ‘ a fluid and enjoyable read,’
‘The Feet Of Darkness,’ http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Feet-Of-Darkness-ebook/dp/B00BJ6LJHC/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1374233926&sr=1-1 (Amazon UK)
http://www.amazon.com/The-Feet-Of-Darkness-ebook/dp/B00BJ6LJHC (Amazon US) It’s also available on major online retailer and several brick and mortar shops!
My publisher, Arrow Gate, recently released a fantastic press release a few weeks back, you can check it and share please! http://www.prweb.com/releases/thefeetofdarkness/arrowgatepublishing/prweb10879291.htm
Much love, always.
Great pic, fantastic ‘musing’ and yes, the grass has every reason to be jealous… Have a great day!
Thank you! 🙂
Great photo, did you take it? Hope the kids being home will go well. I suppose it would be easier if they are not little ones. Be well!!
No John, I didn’t take it. My kids are still in their teens, so very well behaved, and they love reading too. I appreciate your visit John, enjoy the rest of your day.
