Wild at Heart Poem

Wild at Heart

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some bloom in tidy rows

while others in secluded dales

midst starlit wilderness

with quenching rains and whipping gales

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

~

Some grow along a picket fence

while others thrive beyond split-rails

where dreams are strewn in patches wild

to rein them in does not avail

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

~

Some submit to garden paths

while others line a meandering trail

mixed with others nature’s sown

to thrive in loam of hidden vales

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

~

Some seek sheltered cottage beds

while others not deemed as frail

prefer the risk of woodland lots

exposed to drought or storm’s assail

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

~

There is no right or wrong in this

wildflowers must flourish as is or fail

for if they were created alike

this world would soon grow stiff and stale.

I have collected these wildflowers pictures

from various spots throughout our valley (including my own garden)

and was reminded of a previous post I did about wildflowers.

In the old post I talked about a son who is particularly “wild at heart.”

In today’s post I’ve summed it up in a poem.

Have you been especially blessed by someone who was willing to take a risk

and think outside the box?

Many of history’s great musicians, artists, and inventors were just such people.

The above Haiku was written by my teen daughter.

She wrote it in response to some old pictures

hanging on our fridge

(ones of her and her brothers when they were still shorter than me).

Since I am taking a break from greenlightlady for a few weeks,

Β  I’m wishing you all a happy summer. xo

(PS – I’ve added an updated version of my old about page where you can see a picture of my vegetable garden. )

(PPS – I’ve started tweeting … see bottom of page for the link. Will you join me? )
