Poetry Tuesday...

Dressed in silken attire,
Skirts floating and swaying in the breeze,
Their jeweled petals flirting and toying
As they appeal to passersby.
Their fragrance demands my presence
And their beauty radiates an aura-
Delicately charming all of nature:
Flowers…

Wow! Tracy this sure is a beautiful poem. You've included so much lovely imagery. I'm so glad I found your blog. This is wonderful. I'm a former elementary teacher, too and also live in NC.

Flowers are truly charming! Each one has a distinct characteristic. I get magnetized when I see a lovely, arranged bouquet or center piece and can't stop to sigh and admire!
