>Rocks, Candy and Bouquets #7 writer’s island-epiphany

>It took me a while. A Sunday afternoon in a park.
I looked everywhere, even inside a tree.
It took me some time. A Saturday morning walking the beach.
I looked everywhere, even under shells and seaweed.
Crowded city streets are best for observing.
I looked everywhere, even past the obvious.

Flowers, candy, gems
Vibrant roses, daffodils
Chocolate hearts, diamonds

Flowers will die leaving only wilted stems and petals.
Candy gets eaten, empty wrappers discarded.
Jewels tarnish with time, stones get dull.
My thinking is skewed. Seeing things from a
certain angle. Normalcy is out of reach.
One day you said “Pick up a pen.”

Found freedom in words
Painting a scene on paper
Bringing it to life
