What We Want From A Flower
















Photo: (c) Jamie K. Reaser


Tell me nothing,
and I won’t believe
you. Within you
there is longing,
something

that you want from
a flower, maybe it
isn’t a fancy thing,
but I’ll bet it is
profound. Life

changing, maybe.
Have you thought
about this? I hadn’t
until today. I’m

thinking about
it now, how I want,
no, expect, flowers
to make things
better. They do. Isn’t  

this interesting? I wonder
what a flower wants,
no, expects, from
me.
