Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

It’s an honor to share my poem Where Have All the Flowers Gone with you that was published on MasitcatoresUsa yesterday, thanks to Barbara Leonard and her team for their continued support of my work.


Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

Years pass in fields picking daisy’s,
before you were a thought.
He loves me, he loves me not.

Where have all the flowers gone?

We plucked each petal, you, and I,
on a pinky swear, without a care,
of promises made on a whim,
and a blade of grass.

Where have all the flowers gone?

We birthed our babies in open fields,
love carried secret wishes,
hard work sustained us.

Where have all the flowers gone?

The sun has set,
our ships have sailed,
there’s not a petal to be found.
Jaded and desolate,
we bury them one by one.

Where have all the flowers gone?

We pray and bow our heads
on a pinky share,
stripped bare, blood shared.

Where have all the flowers gone?

I would be delighted if you would go HERE to read the rest of my poem and so would Barbara and her team at MasticadoresUsa. Please show them some love with a heart (like), as they work tirelessly behind the scenes.

Thank you truly for your time and continued support.

In Gratitude,

πŸ’—

Cindy

Congratulations Cindy! Better yet, I feel blessed to read this poem. You nailed it!! The title, “Where have all the flowers gone?” will keep shining upon my thoughts and take me back to song lyrics by Pete Seeger.
