One Single Impression: Weed


From After Hurricane Irene in Woodbury, Connecticut, August 28, 2011
Weeds:

We find not their use or beauty;
We abandon their names
Though their colors give shape
 And fragrance
 To summer.

  3. Any plant growing where you don't want it is a weed. Having said that there are few plants I think of as weeds. They are all beautiful in their own way. Like people.

  4. It all depends on where they choose to grow.

  5. Oh I used to ignore grasses and weeds until I turned to hiking and found their early morning fragrance intoxicating :D

  6. We can find beauty in so many things if we just take the time to look. I love the warm yellow color and the droplets of rain/dew! A wonderful reminder, Sandy! Hope you have a great Labor Day Weekend! Enjoy!

  14. To me this is a sad poem, Sandy. About a beautiful, in its own way, throw-away-plant.

    You could be writing about the hundreds of thousands--could be milions--of throw-away people in the world. Or stray animals.
