Brown Thumb

Bought myself a cactus plant
With flower on the top,
Such a dazzling orange
It seems phony, like a prop.

Set it on my windowsill
So light and air will fill it;
Wonder how long it’ll take
Before I start to kill it.

    Ilene, my Mama had a green thumb...but I'm like you. :( I just don't know how to nurture plants. Lovely write, though. Hugs!
