Open-Link-Mondays -- The Sun

The day the sun didn't rise

An ordinary day it seemed to be
The star lights were put out, all wicks were snuffed
Morning dew on grass, deer's last time for wet
Ducks in  the pond, diving for the big fish
Commuters' long drives were nearly ended
Darker than norm this day, street lights still lit
Calling from beyond, Sun was sleeping in
Commerce came to a halt, greed froze in place
Couldn't see in dark, folk went back to bed

Does it hurt when  
Does it hurt when your buds burst
That it might, it all depends
Depends on the meaning of
The meaning of the word burst
I walked down to the valley
Wanting to see my lover
Yet that would be all so wrong
My buds were bursting with, guess
Did I see my lover there
Dying for love, I could not
Did my buds go down bursting
Hyperboles they, could not

Bjorn's challenge was to find one of her poems, available online at a, and write something that the poem inspired us to write.  I chose her poem, "Yes, of course it hurts," from which the first line goes like this: "Yes, of course it hurts when buds are breaking."  You can read the entire poem in English here:(

-- The flowers, complete with 'buds', were given by our daughter, Karen, to Mrs. Jim as she recuperated from a partial hip transplant.
-- Last Saturday she fell and broke her hip. Her surgery was Monday at St. Luke's Hospital in The Woodlands, Texas. Thursday "we" moved to a rehab center where the average stay for hip transplants is 10 days.
-- The baby tiger is a baby tiger named Mike, after Mike the Tiger of LSU mascot fame.
