Paco's Poetry Place

As some of you know, Paco has been writing poems for years, unbeknownst to any of us, in his secret hideaway, "The Bower of Love". He likes to recite his poems to Mother Matilda. You can find out why by reading this previous post, which will allow you to shut out the world for five minutes and read a short story.

Brown spots arrive on apples

Our hair grows thick and

tells us of the autumnal gathering of 


I ate a fallen friend today

a sunflower who fell

like a soldier 

after a good life of purpose

Hi Katherine! I hope you are having a nice evening, I love Paco's poem. I remember reading your wonderful story about Paco's secret writing room when you first posted it a few months ago. I read it aloud to my family at dinner and we all got a tear in our eye and a happy lump in our hearts. It is a beautiful, beautiful story and the emotions it makes you feel are beautiful! Please give Paco and all the Apifera gang an extra pet for me! Delisa :)

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
