Parasites clinging to the last vestiges of life

Natural ecologists despising waste seeing beauty

Beauty like a phoenix rising from nature’s sheaf

Bursts of bright color in the tropical forest canopy

~*~

The cold rains cascading upon already saturated land

Needing the frigidity as much as the spoilage of the tree

Daily reprieve from the intense heat of equatorial sand

In captivity blooming dependent on other life but free.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
