To My Dearest Flower Friends

Written for:  Friday Writings #67:  "love letters to wild flowers"

"I invite you to create poetry or prose inspired by Marja’s words: “Write love letters to wild flowers”.

Dear Sunflowers,

I wait impatiently
for you to rise
up to full stature,
your bonneted head
resting on sturdy
stalk, your petaled
eyelashes circled
'round brown velvet

Dear Peonies,

I long to see your
tight-fisted petals,
guardians of your
secrets.  Slowly,
I watch you unfurl
to bursting pink

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.
