June flowers poem by Polly Castor

June Flowers

Lavishly,
they expend their glory
in these freshly warm days
of ice cream indulgences
while it is still
too cool for swimming.
Fragrant and ruffled
their frilled petals
yearn and yawn and yield
celebrating and commemorating
while weddings and graduations
swirl and dance around them.
They grow and glow, blushing
at the height of their radiance
and fade just as flamboyantly,
recklessly scattering petals
without a care or a thought.
Reverently, they bask in the light,
patiently attended to by bees;
they flourish in burgeoning effulgence
nodding their heads in the soft breeze.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
