Life Echoed By A Poinsettia Sonnet #45 - Poem by Stephanie Eve Kane Arado

Red leafed flower with poignant history
Reminds of life’s passion at Christmas time
Symbolic of seasonal light, glory
Yet red recalls human struggle and rhyme
Battlefield honor and young lives cut short
People struggle to pay gas, electric
Some spend the holidays waiting for court
Red’s in our flag and not just for St. Nick
Pigment of struggle, also a cadence
Of survival amidst cold winter’s bite
Tropical star be our memory fence
Remind of endurance, strength in the fight
Life echoed by a poinsettia flower
Speaks to us of God’s wisdom and power
