Angry at the Flowers

Pic of the day - Angry at the Flowers

Angry at the flowers because they bloom.
Because they bloom with hot colors. Because
they aren’t sweet. Because they got all confused
and came in small and ruffled. Because there
are only two of them. Because there is
so much green. Because they didn’t open
their throats and laugh. Because they are mute. Mute!
Because they don’t move, except to faintly
bob in the slightest breeze. Because they bobbed
ever so slightly, and then stilled. Because
they still as if it is forever. Still,
and then start again. Because tomorrow
they will still and not start again. Because
they are daylilies. Because they aren’t her.
