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. Wonderful poem. I thought of the Pete Seeger song of the same name when I saw the title.

Can’t say that line (Where have all the flowers gone?) without thinking of Peter Paul and Mary, Pete Seeger maybe. Sad thought when it is true.

Congratulations on your poem’s publication, Cindy. Well deserved.
Your deeply felt and planted imagery tells a heartfelt account of love in all its splendor and sorrow. Kudos for sharing your heart. I sense a personal storyline here and there in your verses:
” love’s promise that we shall meet again, sustains me…”
Your ending verse is full of hope. It tells of new love so new in fact that seeds are planted waiting, patiently, expectantly…for that time when love buds once again. Totally awesomene writing!!

Oh my goodness Cindy, where have all the flowers gone? Everybody swiped them up for Valentine’s Day! LOL πŸ˜‚πŸŒΊπŸ˜œπŸŒΌπŸ€£ No, girl, I’m just kidding. This is such a soul-stirring, throw down versification that connects to the heart, making us pause, to think about what was, what happened through the years and the sparkling ounce of hope that comes back bursting with color and joy! ✨🌞🌟

Excellent ladybug and a hearty CONGRATULATIONS for your publication dear friend! πŸŒ·πŸ’πŸŒΉ Cheers! πŸ₯‚

Girl, how do we manage to keep ourselves laughing so much? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œπŸ€£ I suppose, as they say, you have to laugh to keep from crying huh??? Listen girlfriend, I love the tulips…it’s unconventional and still a gift of love. I don’t know why everyone loses their damn minds and raise their prices on a dozen of roses, even the supermarkets, when it’s going to be 90% off the next day! Unfreaking real! Have a wonderful and romantic Valentine’s day my sweetness! πŸŒΉπŸ’–πŸ’žπŸ’πŸ’

This poem reminded me of the setting in the first novella I read today. The setting was a field brimming with flowers, then a battle was fought and the flowers were bloodied and trampled. Years later, the flowers returned brighter and even more beautiful. Your poem is sadly nostalgic. I hear the song in my mind, too. πŸ™‚ Well done. I’m linking this to my first post about the Dicken’s challenge along with your comment from my intro piece.

I didn’t write anything but a post about the novella. The Dickens novella can be downloaded for free from Amazon and several other places. I wrote about the novella in my post today.

You are super busy. You have until June to read one novella, if you choose to do so, so don’t stress. You’ve got plenty of stressors on your plate. Don’t make this one of them! Just go with the flow like a dead fish (where did I just see that joke?) I’m not saying that you’re a dead fish, or even a cold one. Something’s gotten fishy with this comment. Better hang up my line. πŸ™‚

Just gorgeous and I too was preparing myself for a somber ending, when love and flowers burst forth again..a new Spring..Loved your style of repetition…It felt like a song (but not the one by Peter Paul & Mary:) Love how Spring mirrors us, in love and relationships./ After a cold (or in our case dry winter) we too burst forth with new life, Congratulations too on having this published on MasticadoresUSA!! Well deserved my friend:) 🌹❀️
