Mother's Garden

I remember mother's flowers, beautiful in summer showers; blooming from June to September, mother's flowers, I remember. She created texture and shape, her garden a tranquil escape; each visitor captivated, texture and shape, she created. It was tangled wild with color, like a still life watercolor; but no plant was ever strangled, wild with color, it was tangled. Like a meadow feral and free, and of course it had a shade tree; because of mother now I grow, feral and free, like a meadow. _____________________________ June 8, 2020 Poetry/Swap/Quatrain/Mother's Garden Copyright Protected, ID 20-1259-081-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Swap Quatrain sponsor, Emile Pinet Eleventh Place
