In the Wind

A wildflower
Drops seed where it grows
Swept up in a breeze
Carried in a whirlwind
Petals of pastel
Burst through where
Attempts failed
Crops died
Famine threatened
A fragrance of hope
Whispers its way
To someone’s senses
And thus
A florist is born

dversepoets.com it is quadrille Monday. The prompt word is wild.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    Smiling I am. I also used the idea of wild flowers. Love this idea that they plant themselves wildly, many times at the whim of the winds, and a florist is born. 🙂

    I love the title, Mary, and that you’ve captured the whole story of not only a wildflower but also a florist in your 44-word quadrille. The short lines convey the movement of a seed in a whirlwind.
