The Value of You

You’re no pin-up, that’s for sure.  Too pale, for one thing.

No uniformity.  A bit of an odd-ball shade, too.

The sun will wash you out within hours.

That fold is a bit non-conformist.

How will you compete with

Air-brushed standards?

How will you set

The value of

You?

  1. I just love the way you write about nature. You allow me to perceive flowers in such a different way. It’s magical!

    Well, I’m hooked now! I’m wondering–were you always so wise? And quite delightful, I must add! God bless you–love, sis Caddo

      I think life has given enough lemons that I am learning (finally!) how to squeeze – it is shaking words out of me that I never knew were there! It has been a delight to discover this vein of poetry that has been hidden away for so long. I am refreshed by God’s hand working through my journey!
