Happy Poetry Friday!
I’m spreading some color for Spring with poetry and art. The images here are from a new painting called Girl Flower Faces, and are available in my Etsy Shop as a Greeting Card and as a set of Bookmarks.
Irene Latham is hosting this weeks Poetry Friday Roundup at her blog Live Your Poem. She’s sharing a beautiful book called Poetree, and has written a gorgeous, contemplative poem To an Olive Tree that she’s sharing, thanks for all Irene!

Flowers have been in my thoughts and are starting to make their appearances. Here’s a flower centric poem for day 12 of #NaPoWriMo:
STILL SATURATED DRIED FLOWERS
Dried flowers greet me each day
spreading out across an often sun-washed wall,
below a flower-filled mirror, and amongst
a bevy of pattern-filled containers.
Dried flowers greet me each morning
waiting to say hello and ask,
what mountains will you climb,
what fires will you put out,
what particulars will you pay attention to…
Dried flowers greet me and say,
take our negative spaces,
our delicate stems,
our chiseled dried leaves,
and our still saturated colors–
Carry us with you as you
ponder on throughout your day…

I hope you encounter some flowers throughout your day.
