wistful yellow flower

I met a famous poet once
seemed a nice ordinary chap
happy for folk who didn’t know him
to use his given name
he read some of his stuff
& I got why he was famous
he had that dum de dum de dum
rhythm thing going on
the words hinted at clever stuff
even if they didn’t actually deliver
I guess that’s what you have to do
talk about colours, flowers with a hint
of sadness or joy yet to arrive
thankfully the famous stuff did not rub off
on me
in the meantime
have this wistful yellow flower instead
for there is a grey storm yet to come….
