Lilies of the Wood
Through the shadows
of early woods,
Carpets of white
arise in pools of light.
Spreading out far and wide
in glorious song of spring’s arrival.

In honor of National Wildflower Week, I am highlighting one native plant, that grows in my garden, each week for the next 5 weeks.
Wildflowers are amazing to see in the woods in spring. These lilies of the wood, as I call them, are also known as Trillium grandiflorum. Upon seeing their carpet of white blooms, across the floor of the forest, I was inspired to write this poem. You can read more about this beautiful wildflower in my garden post.
The Trillium pictured here are those that I grow in my garden, in hopes they will make a mass of stunning blooms one day.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.
I leave you with a few additional words about the lily of the wood. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
