Bloom

August 30, 2012

Seeds stirred beneath the frozen ground
A sleeping giant coming ‘round
Snow drops shook off winter’s gloom
The year I burst into bloom… 

Daffodils and crocuses,
Hyacinths and irises
Allysum gushed in snowy flume
The year I burst into bloom…
 

Roses red, pink and white
Wisteria reaching out of sight
Petunias led the annuals revue
The year I burst into bloom… 

The gardenia in my outdoor shower
Cranked out blossoms by the hour
Their fragrance put me in a swoon
The year I burst into bloom… 

Old ways found the compost bin
A new awakening ushered in
The gardener for my soul was you
The year I burst into bloom… 

And when September rolled around
Morning glory blues abound
And daisies greet the harvest moon
As days grow shorter all too soon

I cast aside my spent cocoon
The year I burst into bloom…
The year I burst into bloom.
