  REED-FRINGED LAGOONS

I have set up the lagoon
On the fringes of my mind
Set it about with reeds
And wait to be happy--
                              It doesn't work yet

I'll add an outrigger
A flock of flamingoes
Climbing cumulus clouds
And a porpoise splashing--
                              Still not quite happy

I think I'll add you
Beside me on the beach
So I can point to it
And hear you say "I like it!"
                              NOW I'm happy.

This is so sweet and true.  We can make so much beauty in our minds but without someone to share it with...well, it's just not the same.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Happy here!  
I like your poem Ted.....

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!
