Grown taller since May,
my rose bushes sprout blossoms -
yellow, pink and red -
bright remnants of warmer days
Now heralding fall’s glory.
(I don't have a garden really, so I hope this suffices!! I just love them)

depression, lost love, sad,
Passions from expression prohibited
Floods an entire being
As arms ache from longing
To nurture, to shelter, to embrace
What on this bed cannot lie
And what in this house cannot live
In lieu a distant view
Suffices to nourish
A parched heart's thirst,
And dreams of what cannot be
Invades unguarded moments,
While despondent poisons
From the radio spill
Infecting from ear to soul;
To be human,
A sin that cannot be avoided.

that never seem to get clean
even as I scrub you with gravel and
spittle you daily with complaints
you are content to knead the dirt
rejoice in it even every step
a sloppy kiss to newton
who ignored you
and courted an apple
but no matter these skies
of reaching hands and gaping mouths
it suffices to remember
they once joyously suckled on
you were love bathed softly
after the long dusty road
and sweetened with oil
I won't forget the old ways soles
held the string as we swept the sky

The sense of beauty pervaded
In the moment when admiration
Became a flutter of the heart
And it transformed into words
That spoke of emotions
And from such kindness
Obliging acts are gained or given
Though most times it suffices
That admiration just like love
Seeks no affections returned.

we have a crisis
enough and it suffices
Seems to be story of current happenings.
If we would only knew what to expect next.
God always does regardless if we do or not.
I pray to Him having hoped for best results.
Our deaths will always have to deal with.
No matter what, our births do result in death.
Life is final and complete ending up in heaven.
This is only place that I wanted to end up at.
Will be in God's hands in complete comfort.
God always creates enjoyable experience for us.
We can sit back and enjoy each and everyone.
Am glad that I did join crowd created by God.
Only love and kindness has existed there.
