Flower Waits to Bloom

Positioned adult
In child’s world of innocence
Lost path, lost childhood

Littered memories
Laughter and dreams blown away
Flower waits to bloom

    “Laughter and dreams blown away
    Flower waits to bloom:” The child in me is still waiting for that perfect bloom to pick, to press and dry, apply to paper, and send it out into the world again.
