NaPoWriMo 2012 - Day #14 - siege




weeds, oh weeds, they will survive...



siege


a single flower
peeps from a crack
in the asphalt

a button-weed
nondescript

as the morning sun
flexes its muscles
gears up for war

the single flower
digs in, prepares
to defend

the long day

ahead

a lovely poem. It's hard to keep coming up with ideas but you're doing it! (it's still to cold for us to garden...but soon...)

thanks, Lynn!

it's draining, and i am just hanging on. i hope to last the distance, it's the halfway mark already. :)

i live in the tropics so it's always warm whole year round.
