All about the Floral

Today I admit that I wimped out. It was grey and gloomy. Cold. Nothing at all like the sunshine that was out yesterday. So I went through the pictures I took last summer while I was out at Matlock Beach Manitoba. These make me happy when I look at them.

seeps from their very pores
as they self-medicate.
Pride has been stripped from the people
dignity has been unraveled
in place a pious disregard
by others in the human race.
