In the open fields of happiness
Despair, misery, distress
… Weeds, on an otherwise perfect plain
Surface regardless, of no watering can
Reasons to be sad never cease
The dark side is self sufficient
I resist the persistent consensus
As I love in place of hate
Cultivating my better self to stream
A steady supply to the side
I believe needs it most.

wow, another beauty there Dante. Can’t pick just one or two lines, love them all and the story they bring to the visual mind ❤
Thank you Kim ❤ in Thailand now, was moving 🙂 how have you been?
Doing good, how’s life in Thailand? Monsoon weather?
Very…very…humid, the heat is off the charts…I’m usually feeling sleepy during the day…and then the rain wakes me up, always comes outta nowhere…umbrella is a MUST-get
Send some my way, in a drought and twelve inches below norm….everything’s withering and dying….life I guess but humid today, slight chance of rain….I miss the sound🌧⛈⚡️🔥but a lot of fires around…..
Very good imagery- a field of happiness with awful weeds. You got me there.
Thank you Vivian 🙂
