Dreams & Delusions…


The “Weed”




You don’t want me to grow here?

Fuck off.  I do what I want.

I don’t need to please you.


My vulnerability is beautiful-

In a world like concrete,

Bright violet against the grey.

But, you always smile when I stay-

I wonder if it could be any other way…


Lisa from Underground Energy has nominated me to participate in the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

I’m not going to nominate only 5 people, instead, I offer all of my readers an invitation to this challenge.  I have a lot of fun with these challenges, they are a great way to expand your thinking and write in a different direction.  🙂

    You know Antanya, some plants that we think are weeds others use for vases. 😛

    • Yup. This plant is growing on my usual walk route, and it makes me smile every time I see it. What a beautiful misfit… I like to think we have a lot in common. 😉

        “Beautiful misfit” is a great prompt. I somehow knew you were a weed sympathizer. 🙂
