Handle With Care

Poem Commentary

I woke up to soggy fruit loops on the counter... And dead petals.

Handle With Care

Mom stopped watering the flowers
in the purple vase.
The shriveled stems
stand brittle in the water stains
as a bed of brown petals
circle the base.

BMB ~ This poem says a lot about you ... The ability to take an everyday occurence or object and literally write it so poetically shows a maturity beyond your years. Great Job! :) Ken

You have the eyes; as well as, the soul of a poet. To see poetry in the everyday, and everywhere you look! Nice work.

Thank you very much.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
