"Granny's Flowers" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on December 22, 2013

"Granny's Flowers"

Seeds conceived from the world's greatest concept

Delivered unto the hands of woman and man

Young blossoms running and sunning in the yard

Water falls from the sky, adding strength to their stems

Growing strong and true, the flowers bloom

Showing colors to honor thy name...

At times petals will fall and stems will lilt

Still, two flowers will always nurture what they built

Teaching lessons and keeping their branches pointed towards the sun

Passing the lessons on, naturally, the flowers do what has to be done

Living and loving; proud parents, "My, how they've grown"

The seeds; now flowers, plant seeds of their own

The cycle continues, lessons in love, year after year

The cycle continues, love teaches lessons, tear after tear

Their garden has grown vibrant, stunning and beautiful

Vivid colors dance; violet, yellow, red, pink and blue

Their garden has grown deep, rich and plentiful

A family of flowers that grew from the love of two

      Ha, I know... Perks of being a slight manic, writing in light and dark. I'm ying and yang, I try to find peace and balance. Thanks for the kind words.
