The Gay Gardener - a poem by OTL - with photos!
The Gay Gardener
Winter Sunrise - Gardens at Waters East
Just the mention of “gay”
Brings up so many different definitions.
an orientation being embraced,
So many uses of that word
So many feelings invoked.
There are many,
some will not admit it publicly,
That find beauty in the naked form.
When viewed in colored photos
even are heard say out loud – “FABULOUS”.
But even if in Black and White – the lines of those forms
like seeing such – be honest.
That is that something we all like to see.
Clothed only in one’s beauty.
It is ture – I cannot lie
I often have been found day in and day out
time with some male beauties.
On hot Summer days and moon lit nights
even get sweaty
in bright sunny skies
exposed for all
with these guys
one at a time
or in groups
I really don’t mind.
Work - sure
Pleasure - - - for sure!
Here are some of the male friends
that bring my “gaiety” to life.
have had like
friends I’m sure – for sure.
Don’t be shy.
Be proud when you’re “out”
the garden like me
friends like these.
Sweet William – how colorful indeed.
Bachelor Button – what a life.
Basil – love to eat that one
Cosmos – seems so sophisticated even the name.
Peacock Orchid – what more do I say?
Jacob’s Ladder – not bad in the shade.
Joe Pye Weed – butterflies love him,
can’t be all wrong
they love to
And last but not least:
Cockscomb – - - FABULOUS.
They all live in my garden,
Maybe yours too.
Now face it.
You like these guys
As much as
Does that make you “Happy and Gay”?
