thunder in the silence
raindrops, plop plop

Where was I when. instead of then

I focus on the yellow center of the daffodil
it's white petals surrounding it
safe in it's being
knowing that with each spring it will rise
to beckon on a new year

It is beauty in the making
lasting only a short time
delicate and fragile
as life is

hurt

No one listens
only judges
pointing fingers
accusations
blaming

Tears fall, happiness gone
not willing to try
no respect
no peace
empty

1997

There is no remedy for love but to love more.
