I love black-eyed susans, and the idea that they grow in shallow soil, with thin nutrients and still bloom is a fitting tribute to your determination to serve, and the determination of the young to grow. Well said.
Nice! And do I see a nod to your favorite SF writer here as well? (Your favorite besides Zetta, that is :D )
Keep on nurturing those wild seeds! This is a lovely poem.
I never knew these were called black-eyed susans, so thanks for the visual aid. Great poem.
Thanks all. Claudia, not a conscious nod. This was written for a writing prompt. At the time, this is what bubbled up to the surface.
Lovely--Blooming in tough places is a challenge...but the beauty that results is amazing.
