FIRST TRY

My first love was like my first painting I tried hard I felt a strong need to express myself. But it just wasnít right despite all the extraís: I missed a few buttons to put something on, to put something off.

(Florida)
A palm tree on the other side of water streaming along and along. A blue sky, couple of birds floating in the air, old oak trees dropping their large shadows on grass. Empty clothes lines with pins dancing lucidly in the wind. Beside a stone wall Bougainville growing for years suddenly turned from pink to dark purple on one particular day, she said. A hand pours coffee into my cup: ĎI never liked the white flowers my dad gave to me when I was a childí. Is this an early morning full of joy just for being there? Is this another day, or is this just forever? Forever?
