There it is next to me …

a heap on the floor

A mound of memories

The coat of rejection grew thin

and worn

So I took it off

The cloak of inadequacy

doesn’t fit any more

Not me

The path I’ve chosen still twists

and turns

but it is now edged with roses

The sky is Iris blue

and my heart is free

Sunset And Seascape by Chaiwat/

Rose petals fall from the sky,

fragrant teardrops

The sun sets on the horizon,

an orange haze

Leaves whirl upwards,

pulled to the heavens

Everything upside down,

but beautiful

As it should be
