I brought you me, translated
but you don’t like poetry,
words arranged in bouquets.
the subtlety of phloem
reject the dizzy
of breathing the bloom
I could sense the sting of truth, but more importantly, the strength of self-belief … yet another reason to mind the adage to stop and smell the roses? Awesome poem Susan.
Thank you! Inspired by another WordPress poet–I see a series of wry little poems like this over the next week or so, until the well dries up ;)

This is so fabulous–can’t say any more, as I’m shaking my head in recognition.
Hee, hee. We all have one like that.

I’d rather put my nose in your petals any day. Phloem? This magnificent word takes me back to college. You are so dang smart. ;-)
Aw, thanks! Botany. Once upon a time (before I grew things and tended them), I almost failed my botany lab because I killed my seed germination experiment twice. Who knew you couldn’t just water the seeds once, and then ignore the things for two weeks?

You’re a better gardener now, I suppose?
Much better. Oddly enough, I can only grow veggies and herbs, things that feed us, and only if they eventually go outside.
My mother, with her 30-year-old Christmas cacti and tea-fed African violets would only be half-proud ;)

Tear down the roses and throw out the violets. Give me bitter greens and lemon trees. :-)
Bitter greens. Yum. Can’t wait for them fresh.
