On A Short Stroll With A Libra.

On A Short Stroll With A Libra.



I am a techno-pop

flower child,
springing from

an I-pod vine,
sprouting from

my thirsty ears,
quick stepping

to sweet riffs,
down a breezy avenue.
My world is a

musical carousel,
no dull traffic

noise for me,
As I diddy-bop

to the coffee shop,
for my morning buzz.
Fertilizer for

my anemic mind,
Poetry sleeps there,
as my sketchbook hangs
idle under my arm.
I long for a nook
with a vinyl bench,
where I can

immerse myself
beneath a cap of chino,
and cultivate the
garden of my mind.

MFB lll, from one Libra to another, I love this poem! I have thirsty ears, love my morning buzz from the coffee shop, that fertilizes my anemic mind, where poetry sleeps, and live to cultivate the garden of my mind, as well! Very well said!

Awesome. This made me smile. I love the images. I'm not a Libra, though. Got one for Aries? lol.
