For me...and you!



It's a shame that

I can't talk or walk


I do...feel

My physical structure and

worth are over looked

by the eye...yet

one gives me 'purpose'

stepping on me...and others

from day to night

Wishing I was born on

unfound land...

hoping and praying that man

...never finds these places

As I reach for the sun

on 'private property'...I think

how unfair it is

to cut anything

...that grows

I do enjoy seeing fields of tall grass bending with the breezes!

Love ya!

So much has already been said about your splendid poem that it is hard not to repeat what another has said. I feel that you have written "Grass" on a spiritual plane and one of yearning; I also sense your pain between the lines. You have grown into a fine poet with a style that is yours alone. Please continue writing!

Very thought provoling about how we take things for granted. Suppose we were the grass...Some of may feel like we are grass sometimes, being a cushion for all to walk.
Reviewed by Odin Roark 9/5/2012
The personification of grass is both unique and inspiring for anyone appreciating raw nature. We'd never think of cutting down grass in the forest, save for fire prevention reasons, but in civilization, it's the norm. The question of how turfs coiffed each week feel about having their wildness tamed by such brute force is beautifully answered here. Keep up the fresh and challenging work. It's appreciated.

Asa you gift us with a new dimension of thinking. You see the obvious and smack us right between our unseeing eyes with it. Thanks so much for the wake up calls on the truly simple things. Be well, Kathy

Thank you Asa, for inviting me over to review your work. This is awesome! You are most creative, when you can write about grass from the ground up in such intelligent, expressive poetic way. Fabulous job!
Reviewed by Cynthia Buhain-Baello 8/14/2012
Crafty and remarkably unique idea of writing from the point of view of the grass and expressing its thoughts in marvelous poetic lines. A great work indeed.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 7/30/2012
Grass by any other name is called a “weed.” When we plant it, nurture it, and mow it, we call it “grass.” But when it seeds itself and grows on private property, that it is truly a “weed.”

Are we two faced or what? A great metaphor expressed.

Reviewed by Linda Hill 7/28/2012
Very powerful and profound~! You have the ability to put yourself in place of in this case 'grass' and actually 'feel' what it must feel. Amazing writing, my friend.

Many blessings,

~~ Thank you Dearly for sharing Asa's exquisite poetry, Beautiful Mum of such a Divine Soul with a brilliant voice that has a glorious mission!!
Reviewed by Ruan Mills Burke 3/23/2012
There is a vast spectrum of meaning within your words, Asa.
The contrasting joy of nature and then the sorrow that so little is truly uninhibited any more. The acknowledgement of meekest of living things and how it might feel to be thus.
This poem is surprisingly and refreshingly understated - Almost like meditation. Left me feeling very calm and serene.
You have a real way with words and, as always, they are a joy to read.

Very profound. One can read different messages into this prolific poem. Prison takes the human out of people and they become a number,,,someone to be degraded and disposed of it whim. Yet there are those who rise above it all and reach out, gving something vital back . ASA Is a survivor and he shares his gift with us through you. Blessings to you both...M

This young man is growing by leaps and bounds. Metaphorical beauty indeed. You should both be proud of this work. Patrick
Reviewed by Andy Turner 11/1/2011
There is so much to lament on, both for Asa and the agony an love of an unconditional mum.

To cut... anything that grows, is more profound than many may realise.
It just shows that gaol of the mind is worse than freedom of ones mind.

Turns my thoughts to Oscar Wilde and the ballad of reading gaol.

Joyce, the man and the poet grow and mature -- a well though out metaphor from Asa -- please convey my appreciation of this work to him -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend- -- Jon Michael
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 10/19/2011
Such a voice of seeing beyond the tight confines is this, Joyce - and appreciating the beauty of freedoms. Such sensitivity of mind, heart and soul can never be imprisoned. This speaks of real understanding and of a searching that goes beyond one's own imposed constraints. And the knowledge that growth and change is inherent in all of us and can never be denied. May Asa continued to be blessed and encouraged wherever he is. Thank you so much for sharing his deeply personal work, Joyce. xx

So we grow inside divine potentials that sometimes society shears us back with this hell that resides inside the shell smothering our dreams. Enjoyed this.

Awesome! Like leaves, grass has a purpose too! It overlays the land in it's pretty green splendor but the root of it all is that it keeps growing, and growing even when its cut;a diplayed brilliance that is here for all of us to enjoy. Very lovely poem and thanks for sharing it Joyce! :) Peace and blessings to you and yours.

I too have felt this longing just to be myself, and to be allowed to thrive...without oppression. Some people act as if they own this earth- but GOD owns it, and generously shares it. The meek SHALL inherit this earth...someday. Brilliant poem. Profoundly deep and personal.
