Fragile Happenstance

spring crocus
As I walk to my car,
I see the opening flowers.

Each petal is a perfect creation.
I watch a peaceful light fall on their leaves.
White and red are scattered around the garden.

I renew this experience every spring.
The sun warms their hidden seeds.
The flowers turn up toward the sky.
I watch them flutter under the clouds.

My flowers are truly beautiful.
