Flower poems

For Magaly’s prompt at Real Toads: three line poems about flowers!  I am a day behind on posting this for NAPOWRIMO

white wisteria –
ghosts in the trees weeping in
the misty spring rain


sign of spring
blooming in spite of snow
flowering quince


zinnias – fireworks
explode in green sky dimming
the bright summer sun

      Thank you Sanaa. I have an ancient flowering quince bush that is about 7 feet high. It was brought over as cuttings from England when my ancestors came over from England to the new world in the late 1690’s. they landed on the coast of NC and settled there. Cuttings from that quince has mothered bushes in TN, VA, NC, and CA. it is always the first flower to bloom in my yard. It has bloomed in the snow. Obviously, I love that bush!

    All lovely – photos and verses. I think I like the wisteria words best, but it’s a hard pick.

    Very nice – all three. My favorite is the flowering quince.

    I will never be able to see zinnias again… without thinking of fireworks. I love the fiery image.
