Sight of Flowers

Written for:  Poetics Aside #487 – Write a praise poem.  “Praise the sun, praise the rain, praise the loud, praise the quiet. For every complaint we have, there is an equal and compelling praise. Find something (anything) to praise and poem the heck out of it today and throughout the week.”

Though we cannot
have a conversation
my admiration of you
makes me smile
through darkness,
through tears,
through fears

Sight of flowers

I wonder, I fantasize,
that violets speak
to daisies, peonies
open up to roses,
daffodils look up
when sunflowers call,
and begonias beg
to enter a group
of giggling tulips.

Sight of flowers

Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 487

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
