A shared poem II

On what felt like the hottest day of the year Saturday Art Group stayed cool together and wrote another collected poem, building on the topic sentence/question ‘What’s on my mind.’

What’s on my mind (?)

 

thick stemmed echinacea

easy to break when handled with force

that pinkness seeps into me now when I look

my body feels a new kind of warmness

and I let it

I realize I am healing me

 

changes in perception

not all that was seems to be gone and what seemed to distorted

perception is now

purely reality

And the quote by many comes into perspective –

Be careful what you wish for!

 

Wish I were not so shy

But it’s okay

because i got drugs

 

What’s on my mind my kids

that I love them with my heart the way they smile and

jump and play

my kids i have on my mind all the time

 

heat of the sun bearing

on my electric eyes

headaches and sadness

wrapped in row upon row of knotted colored yarn

Life not profit

 

Sometimes roses are red

and sometimes violets are blue,

God how I miss sleeping next to you

 

the heat of the sun

is a most wonderous, powerful, penetrating light

which carries me through a most profound desolate dessert

endless sequential furnace opening my pores

gathering waters of seasless bountiful liquid

streaming from me

I arrive at my destination dissolved into infinite vapours of appreciation.
