Wildflower Poetry

Prairie Fleabane

Early in the morning
the ancient sons appear
whiskers gray
stretching toward the day-star
caressing the cerulean welkin of hope.

Prairie Fleabane daisies
 

Wild Peavine

flourish, charm the winds
paint promise
with miniature pink,
amid the rubble neglected
in the old trailer park.

Sulphur Cinquefoil

Oh for the agony of titles,
I believe you deserve so significantly greater
I would call you ~ 5 Hearts of Golden Delight,
only beloved hopeless romantics
are appeased as weeds.

Pink Bachelor Button

Classic blushing flowerets
swaying abreast each wing
nectar invites
a symphony
a ritornello of bees
to sing amidst your petals.
