Frank Avon


There is,
I hear myself saying,
and this is enough.

I wonder,
I hear myself asking,
whether or which.

Words insist,
I hear myself saying,
wisdom that isn't.

Listen, listen,
I hear myself whisper,
sufficiency is....

and pull another weed
from the marigold bed.

    Aloha Frank...
    Don't be bored with my reads, comments, and votes of confidence in your posts... From the fluff I read on countless other sites... yours, for this moment, are the shite! I cannot seem to get the vote prompt to accept my rating of this post though... ghosts in da machine... your reference to work in the yard was intensely compelling... I have placed my hands into the soil of 56 countries... and watched as both seed and plantings grew... kinda like these words we weave, fellows odd... both me and you... a few of my thoughts are out here in the cloud, as I have mentioned... and a few snippets of vetted fact to allow the astute researcher to admit... That we are returning home en masse to correct the lean of this our only sphere... I am, with respect, watching you... all of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michael.
