Drops of Color
As soon as the word
the song begins.
Each petal a note
alive on a suspending scale—
‘do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti do’
lifting the peaks of the mountains
folding back curtains so the
the morning greeting birthing
the white flowers lying atop beds of
They spread themselves like arms
ready to embrace
—so ‘happy’ to SEE thee.
This dainty pod
honor & glory
be given to its luminous design.
How simple it could be to pass it by.
Yet, might we carry its tune—Edelweiss
spreading it throughout the world
so the song be sung.
‘Bless the Earth our homeland’~~~forever.
may your blossoms become
a chorus that is never-ending.
