Wild flowers

Wild flowers

Air circles the wild flowers
it stirs the grasses in the meadow
and light falls upon all things
and in one way or another
feeds all things and the flowers
draw nutrients out of the soil
and their rustic beauty has
much to do with their freedom

and the fact that they are wild
and uncultivated and serve
no purpose other than to enrich
our lives with their allure
