Welcome to Facebook, Billions Institute’s Becky and Co.
Two poems, one old and wise looking backwards until time began for all those not here to share the now, and one new looking forwards for hope to spring eternal, particularly in 2021
A Toast to Absent Friends
Like passing clouds crossing the sky
From timeless past on dream-filled winds,
Let memories last for days gone by
We shared with loving absent friends.
So for this moment may you and I
Drink now their toast and make amends.
The Love Collector
1. ‘Go gather loving buds of March
The promises of love to come,
And gift these hidden fruits of much
To you who ripen in the sun.
2. ‘Go gather loving shoots of April
The heady signs of love to come,
And plant them in the hearts that will
Receive the joy of hope begun.
3. ‘Go gather loving blooms of May
The petal fresh of love to come,
And see the wonder of the day
Reborn again as spring is sprung.
4. ‘Go gather loving scents of June
The heady smell of love to come,
And dizzy savour summer's swoon
With honey sweetness overrun.
5. ‘Go gather loving dyes of July
The pallet stains of love to come,
And mix the blushes of the sky
With senses of the ever young.
6. ‘Go gather loving warmth of August
The living blood of love to come,
And feel the beat of Gia's pulse
Deep in the heart of mother's womb.
7. ‘Go gather loving signs of 'Tember
The yearning wind of love to come,
And see the trees bow with surrender
Their leaves turn green to copper brown.
8. ‘Go gather loving seeds of 'Tober
The future life of love to come,
And bury them in terra firma
To wait the turn of winters tomb.
9. ‘Go gather loving tears of 'Vember
The cleansing rain of love to come,
And treasure memories, but remember
That nature's birthday will return.

I need Posts letting me know; How or if, in every Colorado town & City, through out, the state landlords insisting You make 2 & 3 times the cost of the rent every month, or NO RENT, affected you?
