Daily Prompt: Blossom

each flower
a star for a time
daylilies

where once
I mourned
irises

Blossom

This is a poem from late September 2015:

Their Flowers Past

their flowers past
for a time and
as I return home
from the grocery store
the beauty of the plants
reaches my soul
for I too have kept
faith to flower
as I can

and grateful
to rest again
for a time

Grateful for the seasons,

Ellen Grace Olinger

O  pen hearts and
O  pen minds to
K  now new stories and
S  ongs

I took the photo of the forget-me-nots yesterday.  Books are some of my best friends.  I treasure books I have received as gifts, and I enjoy buying used books at libraries and thrift stores.  This week I bought books that had been discarded, though originally donated in memory of someone.  I thought, “These books have found a new home.”  So many stories with blogs and books!

Peonies are growing with daylilies.
