I dont know how many time I’ve read this!! You always come up with images that blow the mind!
“Skeletons disguised as flowers” this reminded me of a line in a song “Dust don’t turn to flowers”. Just that line though, but both keeps lingering in my mind!! Skeltons cant be something as beautiful as flowers, and so does the dust. They both hold a strong meaning :)
I love this, I like the opening and I love how it ended!!
I did not expect that at all … like … im honestly speechless … when I think of you and nature I see happiness and joy … but here its like power!! that second stanza is one of the best ive read in a long time it took me by surprise and I was just so wowed by it.
Russian roulette … never would I have guessed this genius
Wow, a breath of fresh air!! A little sad though. Finally, you fleed out of your nest of single themes ( BIRD), no matter how wonderful those pieces of yours were. Here you're not only exhibiting how seasoned you are as a poet and as a person, but you're also showing how resilient and versatile your soul is.
There are so many happy places that that wonderful BIRD of yours could be set free in the deep garden of your poetry.
