Spread the love

by Laura Parker Roerden

A flower is
not just
a flower.

It’s an invitation
to dance,

to fall into
a time
and a tempo
not of
your own

wherein lies
the meaning

of being
made of
soil and sun,

tapped
lightly

in place

by

fingers

of rain.

Don’t miss another post: including #FridayPoems and From the Shaker: Best Investments in Sustainability.
