Flowers of My Mind

flowers_ 2I’m no doctor

to give out prescriptions

just a poor poet

with impressionistic


like Van Gogh

I want no drawing outline

put in

to see the world.

I like its messy blur

of colors that fade into colors

for this is how I see the world

a symphony

of light!


I’ve yet to see

an atom

of happiness to draw

or justice for that matter…

emotions are a poets palette

but in the end

I know

that even here

emotions are


products of men’s souls

well…no not exactly

they’re real enough to me


in the indifferent


my lust and laws

are just

the flowers in my mind.

  1. Ohhh…Bastet said the “lust” word! Sorry, just had to say that…I’ve watched too much “Two and a Half Men” reruns on TV. Anyway, lovely poem and great ending!


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
