Minimalist | Poetry Collaboration with Cassa Bassa

Hi again, poets. I have another collaboration to share with everyone. This one is with Cassa Bassa from “Flicker of Thoughts.” I had a great time writing with them, and I hope you also check out their blog if you haven’t already! This poem is called, “Minimalist.”

There are things she sees are pretty
They go beyond her basic needs

The sun is warm and cheery
Too much of it
Freckles gather on her cheeks

Charming freckles, like those on a child,
whose innocent heart would burst with a smile.

The rain is soothing and musical
Too much of it
Sadness floods on her soul

Raindrops can harmonize with memories.
Too many and the mind is adrift.

The world of art is beautiful and enchanting.
Too much of it
Inadequacy breaks down her creativity

Happiness makes her vulnerable.
The more she has, the more she has to lose

There are so many lows after the highs
When all that is stripped away
She realises how much satisfaction
she has in a mundane life
