[Caladiums from my Garden, Enjoy!]

AMBIENCE
Be inspired by the ambience,
For today, the icons of joy
Lie in ambush with providence,
Waiting to spring upon thee;
Unwary usurper of words
wielding sentences, syllables, phrases
Like peace and hope and faith and tomorrow
All these weapons of uncanny transgressions
Wanting to capsize a world spinning in dilemma
Gratitude and praise stalks the unwary
Look out, love bombs!

  4. The last line made me smile, okay it made me grin from ear to ear... I love the idea of love just throwing itself around without control, permeating everything with it's hope-filled ways, making things better as it spreads all its yumminess around...

  7. First off, Gillena, I mellowed my poem quite a bit while you were reading and writing your comment. Thank you for tolerating me there.
    I like your Caladiums. We can't grow them for some reason. I do like your upbeat happy poem. Yes, we have hope, much hope.
