Things that grow

I am not a poet or a master of prose.
I am a just a man who likes to write
About anything that grows.
Like flowers that bloom at first light
All lined up in tiny little rows
Beautiful petals at a perfect height
To be seen in the shadows.

The essence of man and his plight
To grow up to be a normal Joe
Lives in the day and sleeps at night
Waiting for love and ability to sow
The fates of the two are the last rite
Pray for all things that grow
Before they reach the afterlife

Duane LaChance Sr. 2012

    I enjoyed reading your poetry this afternoon Duane. I am reading today and hoping to find some inspiration to write. I had a run a week or so ago and now it wimped out on me. Thank you for posting your poetry and sharing it with others. Love, Carol
