bloom in abundance
It is monsoon season in the desert. We are finally getting some rain after a month of 100+ degree temperatures. It is still very hot, but now we have some rain to break up the heat. Over night some of the plants have decided that now is the time to bloom.
There are some people who will say this isn't a poem. It is too short. But it captures one idea, and if you look at the syllable count (3,4,5) you'll see that it is a nice little package. I like that the name of this plant is Texas Ranger, it provides a turn for the poem because the words do send a reader down a path of cowboy westerns. Seeing the blooming plants that were just greenery the day before definitely provided an "a-ha" moment for me.
Can you try writing your own short poem today that contains just one thought or image? Enjoy the beauty in your day.
