Love Is Earth's Sweetest Flower

written by: Charlie Bottle



Excising me from my antecedents,
the author transplanted me
in rich bitter dirt,
the harsh noon sun
and cold nights sought to wilt me,
and rains tried to drown me
but, I stayed rooted,
flowering in pungent dirt,
transmuting churlish hatred
as the author intended,
into Love's sweetest gold,
proudly I stand, wearing my chartreuse crown.

Charlie Bottle's passion is poetry. He has lived on three continents, speaks five languages and loves different cultures, people, music and food. He believes that "Poetry uses the economy of words to express the essence of our humanity." It is this magical use of brevity to express the profound that drew him to poetry. While his professional and personal life has pulled him in different directions, He continues in his discipleship of the craft and writes whenever the muse moves him. While English is his second language it is the language in which he lives, breathes, thinks and writes poetry.
