It is most likely the heat, but then,,,


Wandering the path of wilted flowers,
For lack of loves persuasive spirit,
Weeds they called them then, and now,
No need of them in Ivory Towers,
Everlastings they prefer, of live bereft,
Colourful replicas, arranged, in Chinese vases,
Those wither not in death,
No butterfly will land, nor does a beetle break a leave in theft,
Plastic as is the deer that jumps, the eagle flies,
Across the paintings on the walls,
Beneath St. Francis, long forgotten prayer,
A monument of plastic lies,©06/07/2012

Jasmin, your poem fits in ideally with my definition of the majority of today's society, 'plastic people' is how I define them - and for the very same reasons you express herein - a powerful message - I wish you love and peace my dear friend - Jon Michael

Very well done encompassing so much of what is and what could be.

A wonderful allegory about how we sometimes neatly store away all the bad experiences and lies, only to have them fade with time.

This is wonderful! Without love all things wither.

plastic has it good and bad points ... you addressed the latter quite proficiently ... don't forget there is also plastic used in mending the body ...

We are sadly constructing a plastic world today, built on far too many plastic lies.
Reviewed by John Flanagan 7/7/2012
this has a profound impact on me, Jasmin,
it moves me back and forth and through
its images and their suggestions.
One of your best, truly.

Nice juxtaposition, Jasmine. It resonates...."A monument of plastic lies," and carries forth to politics and employment......paintings on the wall. Good write ~~ Diana
