Trip to the grocery store
Paused in mid stride, to admire
Fragrant pots of Spanish lavender.
Clearly a captivating crowd-pleaser,
As the lineup also came to an abrupt halt,
While shoppers consider the plant.
Meanwhile, to the dismay of the orderly crowd,
Read the growing instructions out loud.
Space the plants apart in a row–
To give them room to grow.
Prune in Fall and trim in Spring.
A room full of aroma, plucked bouquets bring.
Keep their ‘feet’ dry but water well.
The more heat they receive –
The more fragrant the blooms smell.

Tulips, the candles of spring.
Their blue, white and red blooms flicker
In the cool breeze,
An enchantment to the eyes.
But their true mystery lies
Deep in the dark,
Where nutrient orbs,
Withstand winter’s plight,
And fuel their upward journey to the light.

They are mothers, forefathers, mentors, warriors, and loved ones:
Who conquered obstacles in the kingdoms of darkness,
Who by their integrity and often, without words,
Quenched the flames of idle rumors.
They traveled miles on foot, by boat, or by plane.
They made do with meager rations –
So that we might gain a far better life.
So that together with the legacy of their deeds,
We may inherit and live in a brighter future,
Than they had ever known.

The Sun at Dawn’s gate opens
To a rainbow of earthly gardens.
Chandelier cotton clouds sparkle,
Slow dancing with the Sun at noon.
Sunset lifts its copper shield towards the horizon,
Where the silken shadows of the deep – the night, falls.

But we are children of The light,
The flames of the universe.
Moonbeams and stardust sparkle in our eyes;
Their distant closeness – our mortal expression of eternity.
