Precisely Painful Truths

it isn’t all precisely painful truths
found here in the tapestry of words
my wordly garden
also grows glorious hydrangeas
and roses alongside
equally beautiful wildflowers

but even roses have thorns
and some consider wildflowers
weeds
this gardener, not naive enough
to believe that plucking the
precisely painful truths of life
makes it any easier or more perfect

I prefer my unmanicured
and unruly patch
to the pristine beds of lies
properly curated conservatories
I shall tend my dandelions just the same

    Oh, but you have captured the imperfection deftly. I think this might be my favourite piece of yours. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing.
