    Flowers of Love


    God creates all things.
    Can we understand, realize:
    in everyone there is goodness,
    manifested... or not yet so?

    Yes, some still remain cocooned
    in cold, self-expressed winter;
    needing the experience,
    the feel;
    that warm breath of spring
    bringing forth,
    budded from within Winter’s blanket,
    flowers of love
    decked in vibrant, living colours.

    But could we, perhaps,
    who speak so freely of love
    express a little patience?
    Accept what is,
    not judge the traffic
    on someone else’s road?

    these words should be a mantra for everyone one to live by and adhere to....

    along with patience I think we need more understanding, and have to learn not to be so judgemental of others..

    if only we could all be "decked in vibrant living colours"...

    a nice peace....

    this piece here means alot to me and it is definitely powerful. we often tend to be very judgemental on outward appearances, instead of seeing what is real, on the inside. i thank you for this piece. just a lovely piece written. keep on scribin'...as i continue to watch.

    Windwalker you truth talker, and justice stalker!

    Again your use of nature as metaphors, delights the senses as you take us there. And then the revelations that come forth from that brilliant mind are just so
    liberating, words to live by! You make me proud to be a POET!

    Figured I'd bring back some springtime scribes. This one gives us words to ponder.
