The Fifty Cent Tour

earth tones

i'm uncomfortable
with nattering restlessness
deafened
by the frenetic buzz 
of the movers
and the shakers


i do not blend well
into the neon light
and i prefer the rustic charm
of root vegetables
over concoctions whipped up
by chemists in chefs clothing


i am a child
of the green gold sod
a product of  

a washerwoman's holiday
i understand need
i believe in want

  2. Another great one, Rene.

    Sometimes the most beautiful things in this world are the things most people never notice.

  3. I want to be sleeping like a baby, on my mom's shoulder...or any shoulder for that matter.

    Beautiful.

  4. Even God, Himself, was found in a gentle breeze -- not the burning bush! Amen, Rene!

    I was always taught that "Shadows owe their births to the light" so you are indeed in good company.
