Wander through a field of wildflowers
whose purples, reds, and golds seem more alive
than all prize roses and bridal bouquets.
A meadow bursting with flowers and bees
freshens the body as well as the mind.
Imagine daisies designing a chain
or Baby Blue Eyes with joyful faces.
Carmine clusters of long-stemmed Drummond phlox,
colored deeper than a young woman’s blush.
Bumble bees hum as they wend through beauty.
Songs sung by meadowlarks thrill lady bugs.
Deer stand silently watching butterflies.
Let me lie in a meadow soaking up
color and sound that soothe me to the core.
