a cute little flower...often sold as shamrocks
This one is growing in a pot on my deck
and as I sat there just taking in the warm...almost hot, last days of summer
I felt a kinship with this plant
Just coming out of my gloom after my accident and now suffering some sort of virus
I needed the sun to shine on me
to feel its warmth on my skin
to open again
but part of me is still in a sort of darkness
and my leaves are folded shut like the Oxalis
sort of prayerlike
Both looking upward
petals seeking sun
leaves closing in darkness
both of us aware of the shortening of days
