Failed Growth


In garden fair of roses bright
a distinguished gentleman strolled
a path of comfort; clear and trite.

Approached a friend with an invite
to walk with him and to behold
the garden fair of roses bright.

The gentleman pointed with spite
to a toppled planter that rolled
a path of comfort; clear and trite.

For this planter often made right
would fail against wind to stand bold
in garden fair of roses bright.

In hushed tone, he starts to recite
the tale- his son’s departure cold
against the comfort; clear and trite;

a replay of repeated fight.
He warns of untried steps of old
in garden fair of roses bright-
path of false comfort; clear and trite.
