Blooming Time

Poem 0154: birthday 9 (everything)

I wish there was one thing that IBlooming Time
Could say to change everything that’s
Not beautiful in your world.
I know there is no such word.

At the same time, I’m tired of
Just “doing my best”. So my gift —
This time — is to notice the things I
Can change to beautify your world.

I’m not even one hundred percent sure
What this means at this moment.
So, like the poet that I am, I jump
Headlong into the metaphor,

Flick away the prosaic moment,
Embrace the romance and passion
And vigor and vitality of this simple saying:
I look for beauty. Where I do not see it,
I seek to create it. With you.
