Chaconia image from google dot com


fifty balloons
is now not enough; colours
still in creating

three blind mice
a nursery rhyme ago sung -
pride of new chants

years of growing -
the strains of innocence in
Chaconia bracts

Happy Independence Day to you and Trinidad and Tobago. Independence is a wonderful thing.
Have a wonderful day, Gillena. New photo is nice. :)

Susan said...

Both together--the maturing and the innocence. I love the flowers and the need for more colors. I've always found 3 blind mice scary--but that is the point, isn't it? Taken Life and independence, we have always the bitter with the sweet. But maybe we can make something new.

Take care and have fun.
