Marigold Advice

You must give up on
what you cannot have
in order to get and have
what you can and may
carry through to the end
of the long workday.

Said the marigold
to the shy violet
opined the marigold
to the browning rose
offering variations on
what everyone knows.

Avoid undervaluing
backgrounds and what surrounds
the over-stated itenerary
there is seeping going on
from context to content
as we watch it go gray.

Stay within your within
never be overly definitional
when the present preaches
when the sand bleaches
stick with what heartfelt
art will display.

There is no profit in poetry
when leaves fall the gold
is covered up in colorful
optimistic depravity
eat and see nothing
all winter then wake.

Said the marigold
to the shy violet
opined the marigold
to the browning rose
offering variations on
what everyone knows.
