Dreams

I planted pansies today -
They smiled as I rescued them -
And pushed them straight into the black earth.
Purple ones with inquiring faces,
Yellow ones with halos all around -
And my favorite - white - so regal and yet so humble
Nodding in agreement to the wind.
I planted pansies today.
I planted hope for sure.

Lovely. I am also a pansy fan. Seems like each one has its own personality
