Like honey the smell of the pink feathery blooms of the mimosa
Are my contemplations of your wrinkled brow when I shall weep
Knowing already, tender wounds which drip blood, that cut deep
Dressings are indulgent shadows of a multitude of kisses laid soft
To divert recollections that burden the holes where tears do pour
Foulness one tries to scrub off with steel brushes until far too sore
My honeybee, tasting the pollen off my au fait heart when in bloom
Dusting off sands of sorrow, freeing soft breaths once held captive
My tree grows a thousand blossoms, and my bees are more active
Safety lies within your gift of love; oneness birthed upon our union
Sharing hearts, where cells divide and fall upon one another at night
intertwining my legs with yours, we drop buckets of pollen in flight

The imagery is superb honeybun. It’s laced and silky. It’s sweet. The eroticism at the end is beautiful. I love this piece. Hearing your wonderful voice is a real treat. You made my Friday afternoon special.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend sweetheart.
Plenty of love and hugs
You sure know how to make a poet smile – grinning from ear to ear (as my mommy use to say). Thank you for your treasured words beautiful Button. I am delighted you enjoyed it. “I love this piece.” I feel confident that things will improve with your site’s technical challenges. Sleep tight tonight and please get that badly needed rest. Love you bunches. Sending prayers for calmness, blessings and peacefulness. Love 💕 Honeybun 🌺🌸❤️💕
It’s a wonderful piece, Joni. And really listening to your voice was a treat. Thank you for the wishes. Sending you love and hugs honeybun.
Thank you my sweet Button. Please don’t feel the need to comment on any of my post while away. I want you sincerely to rest. Just stay safe. Love and so many hugs. 🤗🤗❤️🌸🌺 honeybun

Reblogged this on John Cowgill's Literature Site.
Wow thank you for the reblog. That is very gracious and kind of you my new friend. Love 💕and hugs Joni
You are very graciously welcome. Love and hugs to you.
Beautiful poem! I can’t find your song? 💙 🎶💚
Thank you so much for your kind words. I really am delighted you enjoyed it. It should be a link right above the picture. You may have to actually go into the-inner-child.com to hear the song. Love and hugs 🤗 Joni
Ok! Thank you my friend! Love and hugs to you. 💚🤗
Excellent poem. I really love the poem you sing. You have a beautiful voice. Your voice has a sultry edge to it that makes the poem more alluring.
Wow, thank you Timothy I am very flattered. I am so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for your gracious words. Have an amazing weekend my friend. Love 💕 Joni
Would you mind if I tried to put music to your song?
Yes, I am flattered of course you can. How lovely that you asked. Thank you, how truly thoughtful. Have an amazing evening. You just made mine. Love 💕 Joni
Thank you. I’ll send you what I come up with so you can have input, of course.
Sounds wonderful. How lovely. Thanks Timothy. Many hugs 🤗 love 💕 Joni
That could be a cool collaboration, do you also sing? This could be fun. I tried to learn the guitar once when I was singing in a band on occasion and just don’t have that talent. He was a great classical guitarist and he told me I was the first person he met who he didn’t think could learn. Have a wonderful evening. Love 💕 Joni
I sort of sing, but not really. Got to my blog site select music on the top menu bar and you can watch and listen to a lot of my original music and parodies. A lot of people thing my singing is bloody awful and I will say they are more right than wrong on that count. You can see my most recent music video at: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-5eR
Oh wow ok, going there now. I think all artist are too critical when it comes to their own work. I am going in now. Thanks for the link. 🤗 hugs
Your words, music and video is very entertaining and in fact we have a cat that looks just like your grey and white cat. I am going to listen to more videos before I comment on your singing. I am a brutally honest person. My managers have told me in the past. Tomorrow I am going back in for more examples. That was some mean guitar playing. Your babies are so cute. Love 💕 and hugs Joni. Have a beautiful evening.
Thanks Joni. My guitar guru, Lewis, rates how bloody awful my music and singing is. He’s brutal. I appreciate brutal honesty. Jeep, the grey and white kitty, belongs to Resa who lives in Canada. Spunk is my kitty.
They are sweet. I thought your music and video were good. I thought it was very entertaining. You are an amazing photographer. I will check out your site more tomorrow. I am looking forward to it. Sleep well my friend. Love 💕 Joni
Guitar is one of the easiest instruments to play and by far one of the most difficult. It’s an almost perfect instrument. I got the key of your song, D flat major. It’s going to be interesting.
Looking forward to it. You play some mean guitar. Sleep well, have a blessed night. 💕 Joni
You are such a talented writer and great photographer. I love the capture of the Mimoso tree blossom bursting in bloom with its pretty in pink flowers. I am blessed to have meet you. Be well
Hugs and Kisses
Thank you so much for your very kind words. I really appreciate them and feel blessed that I met you as well. I can’t however take credit for the photo – my honey bee took it this morning on a walk. I did digitally enhance the colors but he got the capture. You be well, blessed and sending you hugs too. Love 💕 Joni. All my photography is mine on the site unless otherwise posted. I definitely consider myself to be an amateur but I sure have fun with my camera.
Wow Joni, very beautiful. You are a multi-talented woman.
Thank you my sweet friend. Your kind words are appreciated. Hope you and your family are doing well. Have a blessed evening. Love 💕 and hugs 🤗 Joni
Thank you dear, have a great night.
You too sweetie. Love 💕 Joni
How lucky you are to have a honey bee, I’m sure it comes with cuddles and stings. Beautiful voice, I felt like i was in some classy upscale piano bar with pearls and Martini in hand. The affection, the care, the love, the passion all encompassing are your feelings in this piece. Just beautiful.
Wow, what a kind and very gracious compliment. You just gave me a big virtual hug with that sweet comment. Thank you from my heart. Yes I am very blessed and try not to take any part of my life for granted. It does come with cuddles and stings as with every relationship. Thank you again for your sweet words. I hope you have an amazing and inspiring weekend. Love 💕 and hugs Joni PS I love the name of your site, beautiful.
Thank you so much. I am delighted you enjoyed it. Have an amazing weekend. Love 💕 Joni
Shalom to you as well my friend. Have a blessed weekend. Love Joni

Oh thank you dear Francisco. Your words of praise mean so much to me my dear friend. You are so kind to read my work as I can’t imagine how busy you must be. I too wish you an amazing weekend filled with inspiration and love. Sometimes I find myself wondering what a typically day is like for you. Obviously you are very disciplined by the amount of gorgeous work you create in a small amount of time. I am in awe. I am sending love and hugs from NC to be delivered wherever your path is today. 🤗🤗🌺🌸❤️💕😘 Joni
Thank you so much Joni! Your words are sweet and from the heart and it is a pleasure to read your work as it is always positive and uplifting for the soul. I truly appreciate you and your lovely poetry and photographs. Thank you for those lovely pauses to my day. I guess I learned to be disciplined later in life and now it has paid off. I am trying to organise the blog and create the series that people will like and especially that I enjoy researching and studying about. I thank you for all that love, and I send you the same right back, from sunny Valencia to NC with love, peace and happiness. I hope you have a lovely and happy weekend with your husband. All the best,
Thank you dear friend. I am grateful for your words which are always kind. Your discipline is amazing and it has certainly paid off. I feel your love as well and hope you and your wife have a blessed and wonderful time in beautiful Valencia this weekend. Many hugs and gorgeous red woven baskets full of white bougainvillea being sent to you via trails of beautiful fairies singing songs of long ago. Hugs Joni
That is absolutely precious Joni, thank you so much!!! My wife will also love it! Hugs and love to you and your husband from both of us!
🌺🌸❤️I am sure she is a very special and supportive lady and it is wonderful to know you have one another. Being loved and receiving love is such a blessing in life. I have no doubt that you are a loving husband. May you both enjoy one another this weekend, love 💕 Joni 🌺🌸
Thank you Joni and you are so right, after 22 years she is still quite special! Our love to you both!
That is wonderful, this July will be our 24th wedding anniversary and he is definitely a keeper. He is also my best friend, we are both truly blessed. Love to your both. Joni
