For Other People’s Flowers


For the flowers in the urban tree pits,

for pictures of flowers on facebook,

for flowers for sale and displayed

in the city groceries.

For remembrance of flowers

in the front yard and in the back yard

at our home and at my grandparent’s,

for Mom who volunteered at the Garden Club.

For the church member who brought flowers

to my parents in the nursing home,

for my sister who works for a florist,

for another sister who takes photos of flowers.

For my best friend who has a tattoo of a tiger lily

encircling her belly button.

For someone who gave me an Easter Lily with love,

for those who enable my love to flower.

For all who read this and learn they

gave their gift as a flower to grow.
