Revived


Three purple pansies
Caught running wild
Dehydrated and frolicking
Out in the midday sun
Wearing nothing but foliage
A magnificent green
Bringing out their violas
Looking a bit shunned
Until I poured them some
Rehydrating the fun

piecing together woolen threads
swapping warmth for a chunk of bread
treating basic necessities as if gold

Living on the streets does grow old
no one is immune to circumstance
just so you know, so…

To hold close
When you let go
Of situations beyond your control
