This Morning In the Garden

Early Morning Rain on Poppy Petals

Columbine

Open, flower.
You are.
In the garden,
Stand tall, radiantly hued
against the wind and
the rain.

A subject of photographs,
at the same time, a cliche.
The artist
affirms you.
She is repeating,
again-and-again,
an aspect of what you are.
In the garden,
you are noticed,
singularly.
