Hi again, poets. I have another collaboration to share with everyone. This one is with Cassa Bassa from “Flicker of Thoughts.” I had a great time writing with them, and I hope you also check out their blog if you haven’t already! This poem is called, “Minimalist.”
There are things she sees are pretty They go beyond her basic needs
The sun is warm and cheery Too much of it Freckles gather on her cheeks
Charming freckles, like those on a child, whose innocent heart would burst with a smile.
The rain is soothing and musical Too much of it Sadness floods on her soul
Raindrops can harmonize with memories. Too many and the mind is adrift.
The world of art is beautiful and enchanting. Too much of it Inadequacy breaks down her creativity
Happiness makes her vulnerable. The more she has, the more she has to lose
There are so many lows after the highs When all that is stripped away She realises how much satisfaction she has in a mundane life
