Re Post


Roses are red 
Violets are blue
Family secrets told 
Through your hearts spew

A white wild orchid
Bruised and stained with brown, 
Its virgin petals touched…. 
Emerging blooms will frown

Mama lily beat purple,
Her seedlings green;
Siblings often wonder - 
Why is he so mean?

As the wind carries seedlings 
Away from garden’s home;
Lily’s tears water contused soil
Her heart becomes eroded loam  

Roses are red 
Violets are blue
Wounded whispers weep
Longing affirmation from you
