ASTONISHING

bY Gerard Lebel

 

Pansies were mother’s favorite spring offering.
 I recall her poetic ramblings
of how every flower had a different face,
much the same as people.
Every spring she would plant her pansy patch
in the backyard rock garden
and keep a daily watchful eye
for buds to bloom,
each revealing a new and inimitable smile,
opening to flamboyant splashes
of purples and pinks and yellows and creams.

 Like mother’s pansies in springtime…
 I am extraordinary!
I am splashes of outrageous color!
So I shall listen to my heart...
and plant my own pansy patch…
Smile and fall in love.
For it is why I write…
 to find my way to someone’s heart.

It is spring…
the perfect time for me to be…
Astonishing!
