Flora


As artist and writer
I am always searching
For my botanical muse
Constantly captivated
By leaf or stem
Infinite structures in a finite space
Shocked with color
Intrigued by natural design

But, I am not the first
To seek creative spark
In this realm
From Monet’s waterlilies
To Whitman’s live oak
Appreciation is timeless

Taking paintbrush, pen, or camera
In hand
I set out to capture this
Ever-changing subject

The End
