Mindfulness

Somewhere, a Blue Flax cluster blooms.
  Their beauty lasts but for a day
Then die in the sun unobserved.

  Someplace, an old man lies dying
Alone in the dark with no one
  To comfort and pray at his side.

Oftentimes I amble in fields
  Searching for this blue wildflower;
And like Meriwether Lewis

  I on occasion find the plant;
When I do, I quickly bundle
  A large bouquet and head for home.

This time they are for my neighbor:
  A man of eighty in poor health.
“Morning neighbor, have you a vase?”
