The thing I like about a flower
is that it has the patient power
to simply hang out;
it doesn’t yell or shout,
it doesn’t want a twelve round bout;
it doesn’t fight
or threaten to bite;
because all flowers know
that the best behavior is to just grow
and turn its pretty face to the sky
and lazily watch the sun fly
and enjoy the day as it rolls by.
