Orange Flowers On An Early Spring Day
|by Rosemary Winters|
|Orange flowers of nasturtiums,
of late, blooming in the early spring.
Arising from the ground
in a profusion of riotous color.
Orange flower of poppy,
a symbol of the Golden State.
Symbolizing the golden sunshine,
or the dreams of vagabonds.
Orange blossoms of lantana,
a robust bloom, on a rugged plant.
Rough and ready, the bush may be,
but the blossoms have a complex engraving.
Orange blooms of morning glory,
emerging every day to greet the sun.
Which rises earlier,
while the period progresses.
All the oranges, of the season,
reminds us that winter's chill departs.
Stark contrasts, the blue sky and orange flowers,
Mix to astonish us.
