Flora

.

Let the fauna take care; winter

has put most of the flora to sleep

except for those pesky carnations

that are green and growing in the

winter warmth.

.

When the weather hits the dew point

fog settles on night-frozen grass

as if the frost gave up tears

to make the weather gray.

.

Miss the flowers that blossom eary

to mid-summer, then in high season,

or only in Autumn. January is

as elegant as evergreens that,

in spite of ice, announce

the promise to eventually let

flora flourish.
