My heart is touched, as
I lay my head upon your soul
Where I lay captive
Among the blooms
Alas, her heart is merely a reflection of a beautiful soul.
Taking my breath away
The warmth of a well-placed hug
Will wrap you up in the sun and shine
Of the moment
A woodland walk among the leaves
Guided by the gentlest breeze
Branches so golden and roots, deep still in the earth
Shading my life from the decades that are spinning
My tall, sturdy knight
Standing through the weather
the seasons of life
In this world that I had created
An all-knowing sense
Of truth as we know it
Littering the Earth
Converging into one
That I may whisper sweet blossoms in your ear
A flower. There must always be a flower. This flower is dedicated to #ThurdayGreen #ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra, who colors my world, every single day. And just for today, we are counting the green leaves for Thursday Green. Cheating a little. Shame on me!

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
