'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

(HH Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda)

Menolyrical; Final Friday Fiction

Occasionally there is an image that sparks the...imagination...











Why sit thee in the shade?
No need for timidity here;
Mine eye beholds thine glow-ree
and the heart thumps to see
thy delicacy upon the breeze.

Be thee my Heartbloom?
Be not shy of declaring it!
Love blossoms strong within me
and the heart thumps to see
thy delicacy as I breath.

Come, now, and shine forth
like the sun which lights thee.
Release your nectar, sweet wine!
For the heart thumps to see
how I can pluck, make thee mine.

    2. Ha! Especially funny since we have bunches of hypericum growing in the creek garden. Interesting similarities that I hadn't recognized before.

  5. Well we think it's good that some of our beautiful flowers prefer to stay out of the sun. I mean they do live in Scotland after all!
