Fragile pedigree bud
Pulled from your crystal vase
To root in
Murky waters, for a season
Where commoners barter
For food

Petals open
In silver spoon schools
Velvety silhouette
Stroked by knotted hands
Of artists
And cutters

A seascape blossom,
With strong, gentle, viney fingers,
Your fragrance breeds,
Warmly embracing all
Drawing hearts to yours
From the farthest reaches

You are the verso voice
The yang overcoming
A beacon of light
A word of hope
A beautiful rose…
A message of peace.

-Paula Brochu

Here, I share, with stark honesty, my life.

just one kiss, kiss will do
Well, being a Yoko Ono fan, I found this illuminating. Good work.

How did it get to her?

Yoko -- toscano
Well, she's my FB friend (Paula Brochu) but I didn't realize it. I am a Beatles enthusiast and get many requests a day for friends who have Beatles names. I must have at least four variations of Yoko. Anyway, I recently realized that she was the real one, and I am attending her birthday party at LPR in NYC this Sunday, but was at a loss for what to give her for a present. So, I wrote this poem and sent it via FB.
