...it's harder and harder to keep up the promise to be emotional, expressive being. Find it difficult and...confusing to read the contradicting emotions in people's face...

In dark Alley last
True Emotion’s wandering
away from promise
with no expression in face.
Next morning... Silence... It’s Spring
 
warm enough for tea
secret treats... joined solitude
with Nasturtium blooms
soul’s holiday... vibrant smiles
evanescing silence song.
 
Solitude on... when
tried to blend into the World
fresh intentions... hues
balanced, able to uplift
sensations that make one soar
 
with Spring scent palette
reflecting yearnings... moods... tastes
with particular
poignancy Nasturtium Bloom’s
cheerful smiling face.
 
Little reticent
with fear... smile could backfire
on... then with demure...
delicate blooms funnel shape
with curious underside claw
 
came up... amongst the
bark chippings... bits of old logs
brighten up subdued
shades of butter yellow cream
to say... I am companion
 
plant and... don’t afraid
to show my true colours even
it leads to troubles...
True Emotion’s natural
urge to be......Human Being....
