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
