Untroubled by Flowers

Untroubled by Flowers

written by: Edward L. Canavan



once a time
tied by tongue
and tail

falling too far forward
on broken wings

caught by beauty
like a trap upon the heart

bled dry
by self-inflicted wounds;

now, further on
and years down the line

there is a wholeness
where the holes used to be

and a peaceful ease
for every crack
in the heart.
