Crimson in a Yellow World

by russtowne

 

The garden in front of our home
Is graced by many rose bushes.
My Beloved
Lovingly

I now nurture them.
Gorgeous yellow blossoms
Explode from a whole row of them
Vibrantly glowing in the warm sunlight,
Petals quivering with delight
From caresses of a gentle breeze.

Whispers

For too long I let

Fear’s warnings

Berating of shame

Nagging of ego

Make me deaf

My Company

Used to dread

Being alone

Like a long-lost dog

Far from home

Then one day

Made a plan

Cocoons and Sunlight

by russtowne

We emerge from warm cocoons each morning
A new chance to spread wings and fly
What we do in our waking hours
Defines who we are and why
Hide in shadows of fear and shame
