While you are outside
blustering away the day
masking the delicate garden flowers
in your white, cold frost…
I am blooming inside.
Regardless of the weather
pink and yellow and blue
writes what it desires
like a flower petal
reaching for the sun in spring.
And if it is not too much to ask…
I would rather keep it that way.
