The exercise:

The topic for your four line poem this week: wild flowers.

A little tribute to all the beautiful wild alpine flowers we saw this weekend.

Edit: now with picture!


As we walk through this meadow
Painted with Nature's colors
It is really hard to know
If it's prettier than her

It probably is prettier than her -- Nature has to represent all parts of her domain, and that includes death and decay as well :)

Sounds like you had a great time hiking around though!

Wild Flowers

It's Edelweiss,
Clinging to this barren rock
With such tenacity that I
Can only hope to strive so hard.

Jeez, you're quick!

Yes, it was really great :)

I love the sentiment in your poem. It strikes a chord with these tired bones.
