Which is more alive?
you need to know when to fold,
when to halt the forward momentum.
The irony bleeds on blades of steel –
blooming is most profitable
when ground to a halt;
in the secret places,
seeds are knit from
dried husks of youth.
Once the shell of beauty is ceremoniously cracked,
torn limb from limb
in ferocious labour pains,
what spills from broken caskets is
Alive and Kicking…
Thank you! 😀
And, the flower is?? Also–do you not get slapped by WP for using so many tags and cats? I see you’re a “dot com”–so maybe, then, you get to use more (unlimited?)? I’m a dot com now, too–still learning what the perks are…
The flower is ‘campanula’ – also called ‘blue clips’. They come in variations of blue/purple and white. Aren’t they pretty? I have no idea about tags and such – I’ve never been ‘slapped’ by WP for anything so maybe the upgrade allows for more ‘stuff’?
Lovely name, campanula…might work into a poem for me. You’re probably correct, that the upgrade allows for more “stuff”–so I think I’ll go for it!!
Do you write you’re own poems? They’re great.
Yep – they are all mine! Most of the pictures are, too – from my garden…
That’s amazing! I try to write my own poems but it feels forced to me
Great photos btw 🙂
