Winterer - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Would this tropical seed grow in this rich soil
And become a Wintergreen one day
Or it may be winterkilled some day?
When I was watering to the rose bush in the morning
I deeply thought of myself.

    This one has the economy and simplicity of a Haiku poem with a touch of Walt Whitman. Excellent verse. love, Allie xxxxxxxxxxxx (Report)Reply
