Wildflowers

Within my dream the wind roars and howls, in this dream I find myself in a wildflower meadow; and I bend to pick a pretty bouquet. Suddenly, the wind pulls them from my hands, and they go drifting, floating away from me; oh, why did I not hold on to them tighter? These pretty wildflowers in the wind swirling like my beloved family swept away and gone; why God, could I not have kept just one? _________________________ July 8, 2020 Poetry/Verse/Wildflowers Copyright Protected, ID 20-1266-970-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for STRAND COMPLETELY NEW (7) sponsor, Brian Strand First Place
