Once again, I’m participating in Poetic Thursday with Pam and her “boys”, Teddy and Angel Sammy over at Two Spoiled Cats. Here’s the photo they provided us last week for inspiration:
And this is my poem:
Flowers in bloom make my mind slip away
to Mama’s yard on a summer day.
Roses, iris, petunias, too.
Mom’s thumb was ‘green’, so everything grew.
Two plants that weren’t needed to make her yard complete:
marigolds were too stinky, and gardenias too sweet.
Few houseplants for her that I can recall,
but her yard was in bloom til late in the fall.
Since Mama was raised a country girl,
there were no flower shops in her world.
But she would love this picture with the beauty it shows.
And her favorite flower? Always…the rose.
