So today, the boys and I were chatting about friendships and those sorts of things......as one does over a leisurely lunch during the holidays.
One thing led to another, and the boys decided that we should write a poem about friendship. So we have.
And then E decided that we should call it “Glass Flower”. So we did.
We took some photos, and E worked his magic with some photos for me. So here they are.
I hope you’ll enjoy the little artistic foray (& hopefully it makes sense......albeit in an artyfarty kind of way! Be very relieved.....my original poem was called ‘The Mysterious Bellybutton Fluff’....the boys vetoed that little piece of inspiration. They said that from the title alone, the poem was doomed..!!)
Fragile beauty, delicate attraction
Song without words
Your very presence takes the tear
And moulds it to your will.
With your warm golden flecks
You reflect life and health and vitality
You cut through the dross
All who see you, reach out
Those who have ever held you
To experience you is to live
But for many
Your intricate loveliness is unbearable
Your colours are too bright
The light comes, the light goes
Hues waft, but never settle
Your visage is fleeting
A hint of something more
The diamond edge
Cuts too deeply
Jagged petals, ragged buds
A million dreams
Shards in the universe
All together alone
