Penny on the street

Some thoughts are worth

More than just a penny.

That’s just my two cents


Based on the idioms: “ A Penny For Your Thoughts” and “Putting In My Two Cents”

Forget Me Not


Tiny little flowers

In white, pink and blue
How could anyone
Ever forget you?
For you surely are significant
Your beauty’s not obscure
In my garden you are welcomed
Even though you’re miniature
For size doesn’t designate
A flowers sense of worth
As often it’s the little things
That are most regarded on this earth
Therefore you need not worry
As you grow in my garden plots
For I will always remember you
My little  Forget-Me-Nots
