The Flower and the Salmon- a poem

A flower growing against the wind 
a salmon impressing in spite of
the current of no end

The outer beings afflict
never ending disallowing flow
creating inner seeing conflict

inner self regard mutilated
outer and inner oppression to blame
leaving self deflated

despite abundant burdens
flowers and salmon must become
a way must be determined.

Originally Written on a 1963 Olivetti Underwood Studio 44 Typewriter in Teal Turquoise.
