Sunflower House

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – Fashion Your Words~Let’s Build Houses; as some parts of planet earth remain storm-ravished, some parts have weathered the storms. Yet some parts remain near-paradise. Poets: wherever we find ourselves, here is a call to build houses. Let’s build them sturdy and strong or not at all. So fashion me your words folks.                                            (100 words or less)       (posted by Gillena)

Brown velvet–center of house
where all can draw warmth.
Sun-gold petals on which
to sink, and think, and dream.
When an urge strikes
to feel earth under your feet,
slide down lime stem,
and squish your toes
in fertile ground.
There you will find
another center.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
