8. Tulip reflections

Like spring mornings and summer nights
surprise awaits those
who dare to look inside.


Like raindrops on a tulip
a tear enhances
when shed from the heart.


One tulip
many petals
one human
many sides

one hidden
of joy


. . . by example. . .

So succinctly put, and so true. Tomorrow I will post tagging you as a Thinking Blogger. That would be an understatement.

We love all your poems and ramblings, but seriously, we cannot keep up with all that you are writing.

Love the tulip picture. :)

This Eclectic Life - Friends and family are glad this thinking has been thrust on the internet now and not as much on them. LOL. As to the tag. I better get thinking.

Brian - I don't expect y'all to keep up, (sampling is nice, though) besides, I will slow down to but a trickle of words soon, Postings 6 -8 were just about showing the world what my mind does to me sometimes,since it was NaPoWriMo month -- I won't ALWAYS thrust that on the world, I'll choose one or two. Besides, I need to stop to catch up on my reading. I miss too of y'all's this way!

In my words:

This is but a one-sided conversation;
it takes you to make it more.

I reserve the right to not post comments that I feel are not in keeping with my values on this blog, which basically means: no spam, no blatant advertisements, no hate, no inappropriate language. Agreeing with me is not a requirement, discussion is welcome.
