cahaba lily

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1731 – Cahaba Lily
“Welcome at a new episode in our wonderful month of creating a bouquet of wildflowers. Today I have a wonderful field flower for you to work with. I have to say I had never heard of this beautiful wildflower, Cahaba Lily, This wildflower looks so fragile and beautiful … and for sure it would be an awesome part of our bouquet of wildflowers.”

they reach out to embrace you

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.
