I Still See Beauty


Was looking at bundle of flowers
neatly wrap with yellow plastic
i am tempted to take picture, share
but something tells me i shouldn't
there are people that refuse to smile
that a view of caring is toxic to mind

touched it instead and let fragrance
crawl into my nostrils; blow to wind
i know those fingers that created this
must be inspired that somebody will buy
maybe capture image of freshness to tell
i took one good look and walk the aisle

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
