FOTD – Persian Silk/ Mimosa Tree

Persian Silk

I’ve never seen this one before. It wasn’t in the park but on that island in the middle of the street. Beautiful!

Over Time

I never could see my life without him
But there stood this broken trust

Shoving past all that I had come to know would only lead to regrets piled atop regrets –
never again feeling safe

As great as this love was
I knew me
It would not end well
So, I let it go in the most awful way
Never to see, or speak to him for ever
Time is not always the healer
she purports to be
Years later when we could again speak
He asked.
I explained.
That was not about you, I said.
That was about keeping that thread I was hanging by intact.

Isn’t it pretty to think so.

Over at dVerse we are to write a poem based on a chosen quote from Hemingways work. I chose the above.

Flower of the Day – Calla Lily

From my garden. I bought it in the spring, thought it would be long gone along with the tulips. Yet, here it is!

Having babies!!
