The first flower I saw, on a warm spring day

Technorati Tags: ,,

It was a small flower

Nestled next to the corner of the house

Facing the sun, but leaning

Not quite straight

I leaned down to see it

Breathing softly on its leaves

As I watched it sway in the wind.

This tiny flower

Cupped against the wall.

Why there?

In the infinite space available to it, why there?


Wind blowing the tiny seed

Dropping it to the ground

And with water

Oh so little water

Under the eaves

It grew

A tiny flower

A tiny splotch of color

In the quiet of the yard…
