Acquisitions grow, worry in tow

Telepathic worry a draw card,
To the wardrobe of blessings,
Acquisitions grow, worry in tow,
Special items in the mist are soon visible,
Life's exciting with the bloom of petals in the open garden,

‘Come and see how beautiful I am,
‘Everything I have and everything about me, '
‘Some of my friends are far away, '
‘Beautiful flowers, I will dish out to them, '
‘To decorate the world whence I live, '

The scent of the rose flower is overbearing,
It is drawing flies to the corollas as if I've wrung a school bell,
Some flies are encircling the flowers in my garden,
Some are encroaching and stealing the nectar,
Tomorrow I will have no jam for breakfast,
Slowly my petals will fall off,
And will be picked up by ground insects,
It does not matter whether they remain on top or below,
Enough evil has been attracted,
No attraction, no jealousy, no evil,

New efforts are worthwhile,
Under the watchful eye of the villain,
Acquisitions accumulate, wearing the heart,
Harsh winds howling over the higher mountain,
Whistle cry goes through my dwelling,
Remnants of my belongings, scattered for the eagle to see through,
My ego is hurt and I am drowning in despair,

Poem of the Day

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
