Poetry Sunday: Flower Woman


Flower Woman


A flower woman

Keeper of the land,

Tilling fertile soil

With her gentle hands.



Architect with seeds,

Of meadows rich with dew

Preserving the territory,

Creating anew.



Student of pollywogs

And pollinators  galore,

Enlightening this steward

With tales pure as gold.



A comrade to nature

She celebrates the rebirth

When the sun rises nearer

Singing sweet songs to the earth.

The idea of this poem was originally written as a birthday tribute for a true flower woman who creates fields of flowers from seed.  I kept the idea, but changed it to reflect the birthday of another gardener/flower woman, me.  I am celebrating my birthday next week, and am pleased to have lived and loved for 61 years now.

The pictures are of native lupines.  They were seeded in my meadow by this flower woman’s hands.  They symbolize imagination.  So apt as I imagined creating this beautiful meadow, and have not been disappointed.


I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.
