Journey of a Peony


on the hill they do grow

starting their journey as tight little buds damp with morning dew

waiting to say hello to the sun’s warmth

that will unfurl their hidden glory for all to see

some journey from out to in and stand in bright array

until one by one their petals fall as a temporary good bye

These beauties remind me of my friend Linda who loved peonies and whose petals fell all too soon.

I love your comments, so jump right in and share your thoughts.
