Clothed like a flower.
Soul. Please be clothed as a flower Peaceful, unwavering, impressed with right colorful ideas Worried for nothing Thorns to bite those who dare pluck in spite Red as in love not anger Purple as in glory not pride Green as in bountiful Brown as in humble not dirty Grey as in respectful not overly compromising Black as in night without despair To be clothed as a flower is to have all the joy and little regret You are to have light in the shade Hope in all that is worrisome. Spirit. You already live as petals. Drag soul along. Body. As you wake, bloom. Bees and blight visit Droughts arise predicting doom Situation, circumstance, too much work, too little ethic May bring you gloom. Still live as a flower in all that you do. Work. Not for worry but for work. Sleep. Not for shame but for success. Bloom. Not for bad but for better. Root. Not for wrong but for rise Rise right and move. Sunrise comes soon waiting to meet all three boons as flowers in commune with a purposeful tune. Soul, Spirit, Body, A meadow of you.
