Raping Spring #poetry

The loss of the Idyllic and ideal in a moment … such is Rape


http://cherishwords.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/tulip.jpg

another flower was trampled just the other day

beautiful, young, bright like spring

a temptation to the taker

taunting her

brushing aginst her bloom

smelling her

but not too close

until the right time

when she would …

open her beauty for him

desire his praise

a draught so sweet

he sipped deeply

then tore the petals

threw them away

walking down the pathway

toward the next fresh tulip

Thanks to over at Cherish Words for the beautiful Tulip photograph

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. Sounds like what we call the worst kind of stinky human.

    I do not remember violated tulips in 1939-40, etc. Maybe behind closed doors, I don’t know. What is happening in this place we were given to use and enjoy, Leslie? It is too easy to just go somewhere and hide, pretending the world is a nice place full of nice Peeps. Thanks for this reality. AND FOR THE TULIP!
    PEACE!

  2. Leslie, do you think that if we all could know how often, how all too frequently this is happening all over the world, the devastation…we would be still sitting at our computers writing beautiful poetry? I don’t know. Thanks for the attention you and others so talented are bringing to the attention of all who read here.

    Good writing, BTW!
    Thanks
    PEACE! (Maybe that should read “JOY!” Would that be more realistic that “PEACE”??? You are the first Person I’ve asked……..
