MANYFLOWERED MONKEYFLOWER

Thriving in the cracks of granite,
small towns with no strangers
overlooked by bigger appetites

for glory, mountainsides of color.
Carefree young, I rest more often now
resisting time, give-in to gravity

to see my shrinking world up-close:
sagas of intricate adaptations
singing softly to the sun.

  1. Have to like the flower’s name as much as the poem, John. 🙂 A flowery Friday to you.
