Every Flower: NaPoWriMo 2020 Day 11

Every Flower

Who dares to press a flower to one meaning?
When one is in love, every flower is full of passion.
When love dies, each flower listens to your grief.

They pick up your thoughts  by some telepathy,
soak up meaning through the air,
are watered by your grief or joy.

Hope, regrets, solitude?
Flowers do not signify.
Flowers only serve as balm.

Any flower head in a baby’s fist, held out to her mother.
Hibiscus petals strewn across a reunion table,
rose petals on a marriage bed. 

When I die, do not look for the me in the roses
blanketing my grave or the bougainvillea 
fallen to the ground in which I lie.

Look for me in the blue thunbergia,
hearty and profuse and growing ever upward,
insisting on being seen. Me, here! Me.

Thunbergia Grandiflower: Flower of the Day, Sept 3, 2017


Pushy and messy, these thunbergia vines are nonetheless my favorites. They rival kudzu in their push to cover the world.  I had to stop and click a fast photo of these vines on a neighbor’s wall.

Sky Blue––Thunbergia Grandiflora: Flower of the Day, May 21, 2017

Just try to convince me that this thunbergia isn’t sky blue! The first photo is of a thunbergia flower on the vine near my studio.  The second is a mistake shot I took of the sky seconds later.  I was amazed at how the colors matched!

Wall of Flowers: Thunbergias and Bougainvillea

img_0388img_0389A trellis covered with Thunbergias and bougainvillea give me my privacy from my neighbors, whose house is built much higher in the air than my own.


Thunbergia: Flower of the Day, Aug 13, 2016

I think these Thunbergias look like they have been ripped out of paper.
