Ageing Petals

Ageing petals

Brown edged

Dessicating

Stalks mouldy

But just a hint

Of better days.

Spent bouquet

Still standing upright

In fermenting water

Once fresh and bright

Full of optimism

Brought a smile

Now speak of decay

March of time

All changes

Life degrades

At least we gain

Experience…

So many voices

Cascade of words

Flow through my mind.

Absorbing

Others introspections.

Occurring and reoccurring,

Expression’s gravitation,

Dragging willingly,

into literary vortexes.

So many voices craving,

To express experiences,

And their existence;

In this mess.

What a wonderful immersion,

In the cacophony of our race.

Sadness dripping tears.

Beauty in the mundane found.

Anger vented.

Love requited.

Philosophy expounded.

Nature celebrated.

So many minds –

Feeling

Trusting

Biting

Hurting.

Crying out for recognition,

And understanding.

Just like me…

This poem is a celebration of the brilliant voices I have encountered since coming back to blogging. Exploring other people’s thoughts can be overwhelming! Yet it is also a heartening joy to be surrounded by others who too are; feeling, experiencing and trying to understand their existence. Keep on my fellow creatives, keep on.

The older I get…

ex

The older I get,

The more I know,

Experience begets,

Knowledge flow.

Yet the lessons learned,

Do not explain,

Why I still get burned,

Doesn’t keep me sane.

I still blunder,

I still mistake,

Truth cast asunder,

In confusions wake.
