Monday WRites 264


[Mosaic 1 fruit]

High on a mountain,
arms stretched to the clouds,
i'll sing a song and sing it loud,
for what is a rainbow if not
a box of crayons lost
in the vast space above,
that blue ocean below heaven above
we call a sky

  17. Hi Gillena! This is something I need to share with my fellow writers here at dVerse. I so enjoy reading the work that you create and post, and am genuinely honored to be embraced as a part of this community of poets. May we all find healing in these challenging times. And as a true aquarian love child, and also a proud flower child of the 60’s, who truly believed then we would some day change the world to be a better place for all, and still believes that we might yet do it — I wish each of you peace, health, and love. Write on!

  27. I have loved fruit all my life so it is sad when the doctors say now that it is best to ease up on acidic fruit! However there is always something to have in my place! Great poem Gillena.
