Perhaps I Talk to Flowers…

Perhaps I talk to flowers

because they don’t talk back.

They blossom when I’m kind;

wish the world were more like that. IMG_0156

      Actually, I was thinking about my lilies, and how these red beetle larvae have been attacking the blooms this summer.

      I could have gone on longer with the idea as a metaphor but wanted this to be a short poem. But my thinking was, when I get out my spray bottle of soap & water and spray the larvae (they look like slugs!) every day to assure they don’t return –could be symbolic of evil in world — the flowers do survive and bloom. When I don’t, the flowers get attacked, and die, and never bloom.

      Not sure what that spray bottle is in real life. Smart and fast acting politicians? Now I’m laughing!


What did you think? I'd love to hear from you!
