New work

Cheeky flowers

As the sun starts to rise

The darkness falls

The cold disappears

And we’ll have a ball

.

We open up

And reveal ourselves

Ready to be taken

As if on the shelf

.

Feed on us

Suck us dry

Rub yourself

Don’t be shy

.

That orange glow

Feels so good

Irreplaceable

Nothing could

.

As it eventually fades

To say goodnight

We start to close

As we miss our light

.

Off to sleep

Until the next day

See you soon

We’ll be back out to play

1. Rhyming poetry to change your day

The roses wilting

The roses wilting

Over the side of the glass

Sensed they had given up

Could not forever last

My sickening feeling

Inside of me

Sadness seeping out

Wanting to be freed

They look so tired

As if it’s the end

Flowers to one side

No way to mend

As I gaze down

Studying the floor

A tear leaves my eye

I can’t do this anymore

Grabbing the stalks

Piercing my hand

Throwing with force

Don’t care where they land

As I collapse to the floor

Feeling sorry for myself

I have given up

I need to find help

Flowers · Life · love

Waiting to adorn you

I wait patiently

Waiting to adorn you

Your beauty

If only temporary

I still seek it

To quench the thirst

Of my eyes

To satisfy my need

Of inhaling your odour

To caress your

Soft velvetness

For the moment I remain

Patiently waiting

As a disciple

Why do you have this effect?

I never noticed it before

I just wish to nurture you

So you can give back

Your beauty in payment

So I can linger in your perfume

And think constantly of you

And even when you will die

I will have done my best

The coolness will come

And you will will be no more

My sadness will come back

But I will know

In myself

This goodbye

Shall not be

The last

I will wait again

Flowers · Life · New work

Reckless roses

I am a useless gardener

I kill everything

Whatever you give me

Whatever you bring

I love flowers

Roses true

The only one I don’t kill

That is true

Reckless with roses

As much as you want

But they flower again

A beautiful plant

Oh how they smell

Their glorious whiff

I can’t stop myself

From having a sniff
