Roses and violets —
Blood is red and I am blue

Alternate prescriptions

Laughter isn't the only best medicine—
also healing: the love of a dog,
hugs, purring, puppy breath
quiet, sunshine, trees,
prayer, joy, tears, drizzling rain
moms, dads, brothers, sisters,
daughters, sons, family
books, play, friends, affection,
light, sleep, greens, chocolate
solitude, company, kindness,
stargazing, gardening, skipping
sincerity, smiles, nature, warmth,
walks, colors, holding hands
autumn, winter, summer, spring,
a simple life, gratitude, home
good shoes, wholesome food,
music, dancing, breezes, dawn
poetry, touch, caring, crayons, art.
