The Wild`Flower

Lovely acrylic abstract painting of several small freshly picked flowers against a colorful backdrop by Sim Lavergne, 1988. Signed and dated in upper margin. Original one-of-a-kind artwork on paper displayed on a white mat with a gold border. Mat

Between
the sheaves
of my poems
a wild`flower
is perfectly
pressed
an icon
from a day
we wandered
the meadows
by a stream
its name
but clear
the salmon
bright jewels
in sun`shine
swimming
for 
home

“Written words give us not truth,
but only the semblance of truth.” ~ Plato

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
