Reflections

I have been writing lately mainly about my walks
I’m not that old to know that nasturtiums are edible
The leaves are rich in vitamins and calcium
neglible bitterness which chard also possessed.

I like bitter melons and they are bitter
I don’t have to make it philosophical
like pain and rejections that acceptance makes us stronger

Sweat and scenery ride together each cajoling each other
like two friends ribbing and sometimes hurting each oher

When we were children ghosts made us cry and curious
We told our stories and we laughed.

We follow the bent of our mind with the best effort
without allowing any passing moment without uttering gratitude.

Without a car I am compelled to walk
Which begins as reluctance to accept
converts to a blessing and daily gratitude.

Part of the Riverfront walk. Cool and sunny. Nice cloud formations.

  1. I think your flowers are: Aloe maculata (Soap aloe) (Aloe saponaria)

    I have that plant, too, only one left in a pot. I used to have them in the ground and they would bloom like that… I divided them up and didn’t seem to have anywhere to put them in the new garden, so I gave them away….
