Garden

Day 21 , Prompt for today: myth of Narcissus. After reading the myth, try writing a poem that plays with the myth in some way. For example, you could imagine that imagine the water is speaking to you, the narcissus flower. Or you could write a poem in which the narcissus berates the Kardashians for stealing their neurosis. Or a poem that comments on the narcissism of our time, i.e. beauty and body obsession, etc.

The world's a farce 

a deception

each relation you call your own

is a pretention

rise above the known

expect no yield of what you have sown

sow the narcissus flowers in your garden for once



Stop living like the spartan

survive by the mirrors

live around the rivers

turn inward love thy self

lest loose yourself in this rut

live thy life on thy own terms

sow the narcissus flowers in your garden for once


Without a guilt 

mankind absorbed it's fragrance  

a long long time ago

what are you waiting for 

hear the echo of your inner self

love thy self before you love the other

for once

sow the narcissus flowers in your garden.
