Focusing on One of Them

Connected by a daisy chain
Fragile bonds release the pain
That separates us. Now we know
With innocence fresh love may grow.

Forgiveness brightened up the dark
And drove the shadows from the park
Where daisies dance, wind blown, and we
Are bonded, blessed with empathy.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. You worked those daisies like chorus girls, shaking their sequins until petals fell off. You gently rocked the prompt and fully explored innocence.

    Waiting Room and the Innocent Giddiness of
    Two Young Women so excited in smiles that
    the Wild and Crazy Free Public Dancer
    From all the Metro Stores

    on the
    and Captured
    somewhat in the
    Waiting Room as i waited
    for Katrina to get out true
    these innocent Smiles that and
    who appreciate a Simple Human
    Freedom of not being Afraid to make
    an entire Life one of Dance and Song are
    A Gift
    to Give
    and Share
    and never one
    to take but the
    Appreciation to give
    for 66 Months not a Memory
    of if i had ever smiled or laughed
    and now for Close to Five Years repaying

  3. I like your theme of innocence and forgiveness. When innocence is lost, forgiveness, though often difficult to give, is a good remedy to brokenness.

  4. Frank, this is like an ode to joy – I experienced the joy of compassion, of healing through forgiveness, and of the grace and humanness that bonds us in empathy. Thank you, this is an outstanding contribution to #ForgivingFridays. I love the different creative mediums here, photography (beautiful photos) & audio & text. Thank you. Blessings, Debbie

  5. I love this post of yours, Frank. There is a softness to it in the reading…especially when I read it aloud. I’ve always found daisies to be an “innocent” and fress looking flower….daily chain workds perfectly here.
