Over on Weekly Prompts the Wednesday challenge is; Green Thumb. Please go over and visit their fabulous site by clicking >> Here. Today is my/our anniversary day and appropriately my poem for the prompt is called “Flowers”…..
can a dream be drowned
by a sinking crown?
weighted down by old flowers
and tiny violets of mysterious power
can a future be found?
above the ashes and ground
blown away by old flowers
as tiny violets cover a crumbling bell tower
can a fading light survive
beyond the gardens empty hive?
can time chime without old flowers
and tiny violets of magical power?
