To Be a Flower

Cornflower submits
to Time’s deadlines
so, why am I always
gasping to catch up?

Is it strength, or failure
to amplify pressure –
expectations set on high?
Oh, to be a simple flower.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
