Thistle Between my Toes

by Maple Tree   Feb 25, 2019

Certain feelings
such as organic
memories, captivate
spirits within me-

Diagonal stars aligned
within whispers upon
my lips, I am just one
weed, upon a meadow

of a nature; forgotten.

Earthly mementos
captivate my bones
so that I may grow
with this pain between
my toes, as I
walk barefoot
upon a dying field
of wild flowers.

    Each one says something different, but when they come together, the make this great poem.

    I agree, being barefoot is a sign of freedom. And this poem final satetment is being free to be sad anf embracing it.

    Andrea even sad I see strength and beauty in this poem. Barefoot to me is a sign of freedom and truly touching and feeling the ground. I love wildflowers they are perennials meaning they bloom all year around. They strong and besides some sun and rain they are low maintenance.. Nominated and add to my favorite. All the very best to you
