We Watch For It


one of the lilies

bloomed yesterday

two days ago

it was tight

and folded in on itself

but it woke up


the sun

feeling proud

and wanting

to show off its

delicate lacy dress

it promenaded

all day

but like any

well brought up child

as soon as dusk fell

it turned around

folded its


and dipped

down into the


home safe

I watch for this

and other splendors

of nature

that massage my heart

and plant a smile

on my face

i would not want

to imagine a life

without the timely

blooming of flowers
