In a Field~Free Verse

It sits alone, abandoned in a field

Put aside by those who care not

Rusted and aged, it no longer runs

Yet look at the headlights so bright

See that the rust forms fractal patterns

Geometrical purpose can be seen

How many people did it carry in its day?

To see the beauty in the lines and bends

To recognize the purpose it once had

Honoring the creation of such a thing

Truly, is there ever real ugliness?

Beauty can be found in everything

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.
