Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

unseasonable

November 12, 2008

these brown-eyed susans
were a symbol of life
the backdrop for spring

now, they are just brown
I cut them off
and carry them away

yet with a smile, I see
amidst the deadness
tiny flowers straining skyward
little joyful blooms of life

I wish I knew
if they are early, or late
remnants of summer
or harbingers of spring
