I’m not sure if I’d noticed it was there:
A flower, in the yard. I’d gone outside,
Just looking for a little bit of air,
And there it was. Some other thing had died –
Some several things. The garden was a mess,
And lately it had gotten very dry.
I’d given up on most of it I guess,
And then a little color caught my eye,
And there it was. And I don’t know its name.
Or what it needs, or how I might find out.
It seems a little frail, but all the same,
It’s here, by some small grace, and waning doubt.
See, here it is. It’s blossoming for now.
I’d like to keep it here. I’m not sure how.
