Mr. Mallow

Every day is precious
Time being of the essence

Seventy-seven years.
Leaves away from home

Herbs of self-preservation
Wholly necessary

Keeping a flower away from his family
Is naughty by nature
Blooming months, absolute torture

What’s the purpose for the delay?
A peddles best years serves purpose

Relapse stems charged herewith
Convicted by household soil

Solitary fluorescence, a life from view
More challenging for Mrs. Mallow, totally lost without you

Offspring’s miss the cookouts
The yellow pollen, bee’s entrepreneurial sell-outs

Seventy-years a symbol of life that can’t be denied
No cracks, still a young flower

Time to go home and recoup during this precious time
Life is too short, as we go up in age

Everyday matters and life is no more than privileged
My ode to you in this life therein

  1. Hello Shara .. a truly lovely poem. (I read several times)
    I especially loved ..
    “Solitary fluorescence, a life from view”

    I have nothing to add to the beauty of “Mr. Mallow” .. so I’ll just share

    “Time” surfaced in recent days .. I met Mark who shared with me:
    “Time is the most important thing”
    – Mark Kageyama (a stage 4 cancer patient, with prostate, bone, and lung cancer)
    “Cancer helped to cure my blindness”

    I added Marks wonderful encouragements to my post-poem “Time Decides” (in which I share with the reading of “Time” – by Julius Sevilla)

    Time that was WASTED .. is time misspent

    Will regret & tears help us repent?

    LOVE & Grace we don’t want to lose

    But should we ignore or fail to choose

    .. Time decides ..

    “In our end is our beginning;
    in our time, infinity;
    In our doubt there is believing;
    in our life, eternity,
    In our death, a resurrection;
    at the last, a victory,
    Unrevealed until its season,
    Something God alone can see.”

    – Hymn of promise
