BABY BLUE EYES Nemophila menziesii




My mother’s favorite, delicate and bold
among the grasses. Hard to come by
in these times, there is a place

among tall oaks where they thrive
that my father must have known,
that I visit every spring to see

they have survived, like innocence
untouched by humankind. She would ask
if I’d seen them, found them yet.
