Say it Aloud


Cascades of purple, blooming quietly by the wall,
sharply listen and nakedly look at the hands
that once broke the stem.

The flower thought it had nothing to say
but the sweet water reveals burgeoning ideas
and words lift in hope to the sun.

This is why I would love to have a lilac tree in my yard.
