Poem 86 – Leave the Mess

Leave the Mess

leaving the mess inside
to plant Forget-Me-Nots & Nasturtium
in pots to hang hooks & flagpoles
one big blue star

a sign that reads: This Is Our Happy Place

later I’ll smell the sun in my skin
its dusty comfort
the dirt under my nails
will sing the song of earth settling in

the mess inside will wait
gathering itself
humming


Psst. Here’s a pic of my book…the gorgeous end-page…She’s off to the printers! Weeeeee!
