suggests 'hitch'


If you 'hitch your wagon to a star'
It's likely you will not go far;
Very soon you'll strike a hitch!
Life is known for being a bitch!



Breeze-blown, the blossoms bleed into the earth below,
Making room for other scarlet miracles to grow.

Fun poems - I liked a lot. Stange how we both mention life being a bitch!

Susannah said...

Very true. :-) (hitch)

I love 'blossoms' it is beautiful.

I agree hitching a ride is somehow cheating and not really experiencing life to the full. Hard knocks do us so much more good.

Ooh, I love Blossoms - beautifully simple yet so evocative! You might enjoy my contribution to Sunday Scribblings this week - there are blossoms there too!

Thanks for the reference to Emerson. I had wondered where that notion of hitching oneself (or one's wagon) to a star came from!

Serena Shay said... true!
