Miss Pink Petunia


Miss Pink Petunia found a place to grow tender roots
nestled safe
in a pebbled crumbling sidewalk crack
ever persevering, she avoided heavy boots.

Though no one reassured or even believed,
Petunia bathed
in refreshing rains of spring
and blossomed all through summer’s eve.

  1. Love the analogy as I think of all those who have blossomed despite the hardships they have endured. Today at work in our playground, I had to laugh as I saw a dandelion standing stoic in the middle of ice and snow. Our weather’s been a bit wacky.
