My precious zinnias
I planted your seeds so late in the season
I almost gave up hope that you would bloom
let alone survive Mr. Bunny's appetite
for flowering things
But today I saw that you were open and I held
a tiny bit of joy to my being
but was overwhelmed when a hummingbird
flit upon you and took a sip
and I put my hand over my heart
and gave thanks

  1. Oh gosh, how I love zinnias. They're so colorful and happy. I did no planting this year and I am sad that I didn't. Zinnia is one of Julie's favorites.

  2. I wonder why they don't sell more zinnias at the the jumbo ones!


leave me a line of joy
