i waited
needing reassurance
decided time
could show me
the strength was always there

as flowers wane
petals drop
each one a word
nourishing
and controlled

the pink hue
a favorite
a ballerina’s piroutte
I stand toe-to-toe
I am my own advocate.

(Flowers: “Queen of the Prairie” Filipendula rubra Rosaceae Family.  Perfers well-drained, moist soils.  Perfect for bog gardens.  Sun to part-shade.
