Where the wind has blown

Friends like a cool summer wind
freely flow in.
flourishing ,full
fresh and new
But like always
as time
begrudgingly
grew so had you .

Those once popular
petals from your flimsy
flower of friendship
have now
fallen far from
your stiffened stem
of social standards .
And have
plummeted deep
into the darkness
of the unknown .

Yes you have grown
But what is there
left to be shown
No one’s life
except your own.

Last few words: 
I’ve been in the hospital for three days I’ve havent slept in two days they gave me another burhole and next week I’m going have another brain surgery. I’m still currently in the hospital in Richmond

poetry helps you and lifts your spirits. writing is supposed to keep you interested in life. it might be good for you to submit a few of your poems for publication. have you done any of that? I think they are good enough to be considered.

I hope your surgery goes well. good luck with it. *Cat

When someone reads your work
And responds, please be courteous
And reply in kind, thanks.

the best of luck, my friend! I can only hope that you find our friendship here at Neo. an inspiration and comfort. I look forward to your concise writing of emotion and view of things that you have only experienced through the writings of yourself and others. Take heart, our friend, that we are here with you. ~ Geez.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

I always enjoy reading your poems. I’m wishing you luck heading into surgery. You’ll always have a friend here. You can message me if you want to talk, I’m on the site twice a day reading and commenting. Maybe some of your skill with alliteration would rub off on me.

Keep us informed on your procedures if you can, I’ll speak for the regular crowd, we are all behind you here.

Best wishes,
Tim
