self portrait (a window seat view)

a flower in a pot,
held captive by her roots
some say she's pretty, me,
I don't know.
she reaches for the sun
with all that she knows
and attempts each day
to bloom.
small things bring pleasures
one day at a time
children and puppies, rainbows and blue skies,
dessert at lunch, for
she's a taoist you see,
and her pleasure count
starts anew each and every day.
but deep inside, if you could see,
she doesn't need much to
reach for the stars
she just needs a different
gardner and a pot
with room to grow

Very well done. We all that pot with room to grow. No, Toerag, I'm not being facetious! It is an excellent line and the poem is very enjoyable.

Yes, Iloveit - a pot with room to grow - not just out, but UP, because UP is where the sunshine lives, and up is where the Hope awaits. I'm waiting for you to change that pot. Look up, little one.

Superb job, O&O... and with all the manure you've had to wade through, the blooms will be breathtaking when you have your chance to grow!
