Happiness, Flowering

This poem is in response to paint-chip poetry #10, and I am also sharing it with Writers’ Pantry today. The photo was taken by me on my trip to an arboretum last week.


The world needs an arboretum
Full of imperfect beauty:
Where the wisteria will know it’s wonderful,
Even without the dandelion’s innocence,
Even without the roses’ alluring
Cotton-candy pink petals —
Where the sun and the full moon
Shine upon multicolored flowering.
