Wildflowers

The wildflower begins its life as a seed
Within itself it contains all it will need
Along with the rain and the sun to feed
To become something we can't it will succeed

For despite the problems that around them lie
The wildflower stays beautiful as time goes by
Not realizing we no longer stop to see
Or care anymore how fragile they can be

They continue to fill the air with their sweet perfume
But as time goes by we give them less and less room
More concrete and cities in their path now loom
I'm afraid their future could hold some serious gloom

So as down this road of life you race
The next time you happen upon a place
Where wildflowers put a smile on your face
Take the time to stop and pick yourself a vase!

    I had to stop and read this poem. My mother loves wildflowers. If they don't grow naturally in her yard she will find some and plant them. Many people treat them as weeds especially if they have thistles but my mom loves them all. I enjoyed your poem. Thanks for sharing.

    AWESOME!!!! It reminds me of when I am a passenger in the car and I'm looking out the window. All the homes and buildings crowding my sight, then we hit country roads and the fields of grass and flowers take my breath away. These are the times I feel at one with Mother Earth and really appreciate nature.

    Awesome write my friend, there is a wide selection of vases, and the next time I look at a vase I'll think of you, and a purple chrysanthemum adrift the snow, sending my love, xxx

    Very nice, Donna. I see a big improvement in your meter in this one. I love wildflowers. I wish they would plant more of them in the highway medians for us to enjoy. Cheers, Roy

    Lucas. You are very kind. You have much more talent than me! Your poem Scars Left Behind made me cry. When I was ten I was sent to a school where it was the first year it was desegarated. I couldn't understand why no one liked me coming from a very small town and never knowing anything but kindness. I'm sorry for the pain you have had. Happiness friend

    Very well said, if you have a chance read my poem"City of Dust" it takes a step even further into the future. I hope you enjoy. Also check out Chrishomusic.com, very talented Canadian artist from Victoria with a social conscience.

    I have pulled over on the side of a road before and picked me some flowers to bring home! They looked so pretty there in our vase, they sure are beautiful, wildflowers are! Of course your write about these wildflowers is just as beautiful I must say my friend! I loved reading this delightful poem, a glorious poem, this afternoon! What a special piece you have written here, thank you for sharing! Great Work!!
