Water, Sun and Love


Bury my ashes

In organic soil

Then plant a seed

An acorn, a fern or a mushroom

Please tend the plant

Water, sun and love

In winter when plants recline

And smiles disappear

Please continue your care

In the spring I return

Water, sun and love

As years pass

And withering arrives

Please burn the plant

And bury the ashes

In organic soil

Water, sun and love

Hi!  Johnny Walker here.  In writing I go by John Walker.  I’m 61 years old and live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California.  I write poetry, short stories and I am currently working on a novel (or trying to I should say).  My work is simple and easily understood……’fraid I ain’t all that deep, but I hope people enjoy them nonetheless.
