the volunteer


today I am thankful
for volunteer sunflowers
and the first colorful bloom
amidst the varying shades of green
in my former garden
gone to weed this year
for if it weren’t for these marvelous sunflowers
offering the first bloom of summer
like a gift
to soothe my aching heart
it’d just be a jumble of weeds
forevermore

    Thank you, Zena. I tried to get the photograph shown at Tumblr to post with the poem here at Opera, but was having technical difficulties that made me want to scream, "Just work, damn it!" Instead, I posted the poem pictureless and figured I'd try again another day when I had a bit more patience. HOPE things are going well with you as September is coming to an end soon and 2012 marches on.~ Janean

    It's good to be back, Zena. I'll try to check in regularly again. Part of the reason I've been MIA (Missing in Action) is we got a three month old puppy in January of this year. He's full of energy and antics, and I haven't been able to sit with my laptop and enjoy quiet thinking time in quite awhile. Oh. This is so nice…'cause that almost one year old dog fell back asleep this morning. It's a Beautiful Day indeed!~ Janean

  3. I will, Zena. He's a big sweet pup and I love him way more than I should…not that love comes with parameters. It's there, or it's not and the best kind is deeper than an ocean and bigger than the universe and doesn't come with any conditions or strings. ~ Janean

  4. I finally got the photograph to post with this poem. The delay was due to a technical glitch between My Opera software and my getting on in years mac laptop runnin' Safari. Of course, when I used Internet Explorer via The Bat Computer, located in the basement of my house, adding the photograph was as easy as it used to me from my shiny silver laptop. *sigh* I just need these things to work damn it. The first time. At least I know The Work Around for next time. ~ Janean
