Wildflowers

Wildflowers penetrate the porous dirt

Mingling with the grasses

Unafraid to assert their presence in the fields. Wildflowers dance freely,

spreading seeds through the air

Along the music of the wind.

Wildflowers; bright yellow, purple lilac

A great contrast to the uniformity of grass.

Wildflowers rise wild, brave, and free. Alive.

Fear

Anxiety rising with the setting sun
Assaults from unloving souls resurface
Shadows haunt my conscious mind
Possibly paranoia –
Losing touch with reality
I see the face of
my former lover
my current enemy
all around me.
