Resist

the temptation

of the forbidden fruit,

sweetest pleasures become bitter

through guilt.

Sleeping

Necessity

Delightful or fearful

Unrestrained imaginations

Slumber

Plantsman

tends his garden.

Hopes and Aspirations,

grow deep roots before you flower.

Display.

Brother

without malice

sympathetic shadow

acceptance of uniqueness

helper.

Hermit,

content with self

in spiritual solitude.

Philosopher of the soul,

with God.

.

Deny,

weakness in self.

Foul characteristic,

cause of my long isolation.

Reject.

.

Corners,

nooks and crannies,

perspectives unnoticed.   

Explore life’s narrowest spaces.

Find life.
