And a dressing room
Where it builds
Where it falls.

Poem on Demand: “Front Yard Gardens…”

This theme was given by the red-headed woman who wanted us to write about “Why am I still single?” – for some reason that sparked a conversation but no poetry challenge.

Front Yard Gardens in San Francisco

Outside, flowers that grow in light.
Inside, life that grows in the dark.

“Can You Read My Brain Waves?”

Thoughts are a placid ocean
Life gives a stir
You ride the wave
It if crashes into me,
Only then I’ll know.

with repetition
But savoring it will.
