a couple of poems about flowers

13 Jan



Clarity, Inebriation

I want to get the world drunk on flowers,

high on the intoxicating air of a clear spring day

when the scent of a world starting again

out of the rubble of winter

inundates you with the triumph of a million

petals opening up from their buds

and waving at you as the breeze bounces by.

I want smiles to bloom and blossom

and heads to spin from the beauty of it all.


Poem for a Lover

Bring me a bouquet of wildflowers,

for then I will know

that you have gone and seen the world.
