I wish I knew your name
Amidst forgotten golden leaves,
you sprouted from barren earth-
a miracle in the making
Blushing in shyness,
petals like rosy cheeks-
you awakened the child within
Slowly opening up,
you promised a new beginning-
I do know your name now
I will call you hope
To my delight this week, I spotted these pretty little flowers while I was walking in the park. Perhaps one of my lovely readers can tell me their names. Does anyone know what they are called? They seem to have sprouted overnight, scattered among leaves and other buds. The flowers have a natural pink/purple hue to them, but I edited the photos to give the images a painterly effect and a bit of a mystical glow.
To me, Spring symbolizes a new beginning and the promise of hope. Notice how in the third image, the flower opens up, which inspired my poem. I'm sharing my poem with Imaginary Garden With Real Toads, where today's challenge is to write an "open letter." So, here is my metaphorical open letter to Spring! I'm also sharing my post with "Nature Notes" at Rambling Woods. And since these are floral images with an artsy look, I'm also linking to Floral Friday Fotos and Pixel Dust Photo Art. Enjoy my poem and photos!
