May we
make this world
like our beds —
corners —
spreading out
a fresh clean
place to coexist —
left for future

    That’s a lovely poem!
    Thank you for “liking” my butterfly this morning!
    I feel like I have fresh clean world to enjoy being in for the rest of the day – thank you! 🙂

  3. I love the word “wellspring” which I absolutely did NOT look up. I swear…;)

    • Haha! Me too! Now that I think about it, the way I used the word in the poem made me sound like an oxymoron! Wellsprings are always left for future relationships b/c by definition they are in continual supply! At least coexist and relationships rhymed 😉

    My good morning metaphor for life…

  7. “wellsprings/ left for future/ relationships” a lovely way to end on a hopeful and very humanistic note.
