A Luscious Pink Petunia in the Garden

Though you are but a stranger to me, I offer you a kiss.
And though I’ve never met you, I know you and what you’re searching.
Look tenderly at me, and you will find it.
It is in me what you, stranger, yearn for most.
I’ll quench your thirst, I’ll satisfy your craving.
For in that great smelter that forged your feet and eyes, was forged the small seed that gave me life.
We’re brethren, stranger. I am you.

    Thanks for letting me know, Shadow! I am so glad that it was featured. I have been trying to post a photo of the petunia that inspired the poem, but I haven't figured it out how to do it yet. Thanks again, Sergio.

    Hi SKAT! Thank you for your comment. It really encouraged me to read the comments I have received since I posted my first poem. I have posted a few more. I look forward to reading everyone's poetry. I am still learning how to maneuver around the Poetry Soup website. Would you happen to know how to post images to the poems' pages. I wanted to post the images of the flowers that inspired my flower poems. Best, Sergio
