The Blossom


Pink and white flower.


There’s fire inside the blossom
And petals dipped in pink.
They’re reaching for the sunlight
On vines that interlinkThe bloom is beautiful and bright
A truly effervescent sight
To grace the path along the way
And brighten up most any day.

And OH the JOY to see it!
To be drawn into its lure,
Is a feeling fresh and pure.
Think I’ll linger just a bit.


Author Notes
I dont know what kind of flower this is, but it sure is unique and beautiful.

I mixed the rhyme scheme in this poem. It is:
abcb ccdd effe.

The meter was:
7-6-7-6 8-8-8-8 7-7-7-7

I came across this flower along the path at the Minnesota Arboretum in Chanhassen, Minnesota. I shot this photograph with my Sony Alpha camera.
