A Poem (and a Photograph)


There Should Be Flowers

There should be flowers

everywhere you go

and the open hands of friends

to catch all the petals

that are bound to fall.

Let there be daylight

a step ahead of your steps,

the accepting gaze of old eyes

to meet you at the door

and kiss the joy in your face.

Children to pamper and rear

on abundance of honey and milk

sweet, innocent, devilish smiles

smiling smiles that bless

and affirm your labors of faith.

There will be reasons

revealed each morning

confusion visits your thoughts.

There will be peace on the path

that leads you back to yourself.
