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

Very well done encompassing so much of what is and what could be.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
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.

We are sadly constructing a plastic world today, built on far too many plastic lies.

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

Politics, Poetry and Love in the Obama Age by Lonnie Hicks

This is a large volume of poetry (560 pps) which seeks to capture the spirit and issues ordinary individuals (myself included) struggle with here at the on-set of the Obama Age.
