Poem for Carry On Tuesday


Carry on Tuesday posts: Our prompt this week is a quotation from John Lennon: Love is the flower you've got to let grow.




Love is the Flower

tall and gangly
tattered at the crest
promising nothing
it sticks around

stays in place
a wild stalk
stalwart and true
proud as the rose

blossoms thrust forth
a summer surprise
love is the flower
you've got to let grow

From something tall and gangly to love itself--a blossom and a blossoming. What a great piece.

Feed it well and it will grow strong.

I love the words Stalwart, it just utters proud doesn't it. Love your C.O.T.
