Patti Masterman


Small flowers


Lay your grief
at the Roses feet;
Find peace in
the Baby's Breath,

Small flowers best
assuage the grief,
Taking all
the sting of death.

    Being specially sensitive to small flowers I salute these beautiful lines. There's strength behind their fragility. 'So small are the flowers of Seamu...' always wanted to say with so strong are the flowers... :) (Report) Reply
