African Violet

I see you in the wind
Subtle, beautiful
The sun captures you, 
from bloom to stem
Your dark attraction is intoxicating
Various shades you are,
Blue-violet, fuschia and pink
My favorite
The wind teases your petals,
Your color is rich,
Your petals are your crown
Where did you come from?
Usam Basa mountains of Kenya or Tanzania?
What do they call you?
They call you “Blue Boy”, but I like
“Pink Beauty”
I pluck you, and touch your petals…softly
Teasing the rim ever so gently
Let me plant you in my garden
Let my water flow around you, 
In you, to nurture you
