the life of flowers

Updated on January 18, 2015

these colors speak

to me


in lieu of an other-wise

flat-gray world;


they jump up and

proclaim their love.


every day they

change – split off


from earlier versions

of themselves –


but the constant remains:

grow, or die:


stretch up

and out


with hungry arms

and open mouths;


or crouch into

shadow and


fuzzily forget

who you are.


it is a glorious choice

anew each day,


and it is

yours.
