A Belated Valentine

Your love is everywhere-

in the vibrant purple iris,

the tulip soon effulgent

in full bloom,

the multitude of happy dandelions

dotting the newly-greened spring

lawns like the eyes of Argos.

We are your flowers who

open into billions of brilliant colors,

bring up purpose from our roots

like rising sap,

remain for a brief sunset

then wither and return

to you, mother; you who tends

our tiny headstones...leaving a

pebble of remembrance each night.
