Gracious Blooms

a vase is a pocket for cut flowers
flowerless, it's just a void
forgotten in shadow

a whiff of lilac
reminding me of my youth
a gift from nature
grandma's cherished vase holding
violet blooms blissfully

gracious blooms of hope
can fill a void 
upon strong faith



For Constance La France's contest, 'Three Verses'
