Flowers Strung by Jeff Flesch

There is a way pain feels

deep in my bones

a notion of the past

and of a present

yet to be fully manifest

deep aches

rejuvenated by a skyline

left leaking

along a horizon

melting love

into plants

and flowers strung together

like a bow

tried, and true

a manifestation too

of you

who

has always been

the love

at the center

of my afternoons

    Jeff’s poetry is a slow dance of love and hurt with loving memories playing a tune while nature imbues the verse. The transition of negative to positive is incomplete without the fragrant and colorful bursts of the natural world. Feelings never die, they simply shape themselves to accommodate the shifts of hearts and minds.
    Congratulations Jeff!

    This is brilliant from the flow of words, emotion and the development of the characters. Very full in little effective words. Masterly crafted. 💚

    This had triggers.. all over it. Emotions seem to always ummer beneath the surface, and little things trigger. Sometimes good memories and the not so good ones. Loved this poem Jeff. ❤️🙏🙏

  9. No matter where you start out in Nature, Jeff, you end up inside your own heart in love and bringing it all into one picture. It’s beautifully cosmic and says so much about that heart that beats inside you.
