Dim Flaxenwick - Flower Child

Updated on February 20, 2013

Roses are red,

Violets are blue.

But Bluebells,

Are the flowers for you.


A hot-house orchid,

Or a hybrid rose?

But you are a hug, a kiss,

Or maybe warm prose.


You are a woodsy,

Flower wild,

And should you not be,

A Flower Child?



~Micky Dee~


My Friend Dim

My friend is always there for me.

She gives me loft when I am tethered.

She sees the "me" within,

Beyond the vessel weathered.


She sees the "me" that is "me",

Beyond label and fable,

She sees the "me",

Stable and able.


When the sun is finally set,

And true light has come to be,

She will have already known,

The "me" that's really "me".



~Micky Dee~

      Beautiful from deep inside Micky, you're like an open book sharing a wisdom that you've earned being on this Earth for, uh-hum, a while! :o) me too. The lines that Genna posted are my favorites and in full agreement that it's beyond caring and more understanding! And the last poem with the Sun holding your heart with lock in key . . . aaah melting. Being in touch with mother nature reflects an inner wisdom of ourselves indeed! Hugs and Blessings Kathi :O)

      "My friend is always there for me.

      This is beyond is the understanding and caring in the “knowing” that is really quite beautiful. “You are always there or here when some can’t be found." Dim is a very special person; as are you. Voted UAB. :-)

      Very beautiful, heartfelt tribute to a beloved friend, Micky Dee. Both you and Dim are very fortunate to have each other's backs. I love the line "to be still and know", as this is a rare quality. Awesome in all ways, Micky Dee, just like you...and your friend, Dim.

      Dearest Micky... I am speechless.....

      I feel it is a great honour to have a poet write somethin for me.

      This isn´t just any poem. It is a delight that brings tears to my eyes, because you obviosly know the "me" within just as you say that I know you. Thank you for doing such a special , incredible thing for me.

      Take care dear friend, Hugs and God Bless.
