Today, on the road into town, 
touch me nots
hovered all around.

They glided even in the 
absence of a breeze
up and down, to and fro.

They dotted the air like 
snowflakes falling up from a
meadow before falling down

back toward the ground.
I pulled my truck over, got out, 
and stood amidst them.

They fell around me fighting for 
flight so light that a brush of my
hand sent them rushing on 
through their plight.

Impatiens are 
wonderful flowers
giving themselves up in
beautiful showers

more vibrant,
it seems,
in death
then in life.
