Wildflowers, I want so much to be wild like you.
Bursting forward with best intentions,
you lead by example.
Dear little rose buds, you were the only two left
after the deer dined in the early humid haze.
I am tempted to pick you but I take a photo
instead and hope to see you again tomorrow.
Reeds bowing gently in the wind—
you know exactly how to bend
so as not to break into pieces.
so lovely and unpretentious,
why can’t we all be just like you?
There are always a roomful of reasons to say “no”.
Reminder: Say “yes” more often.
