Wildflowers


Swaying in the breeze
teased by the sun
you’ll see me in a meadow
splashes of color earth spun
wispy serrated leaves
wildflowers dancing between trees
Queen Anne’s lace
adorned in tiny bees
pungent in the heat
bee balm’s minty fragrance
hummers fluttering around blooms flagrant
the Oswego tea of past 
when this land gave
and received
I am the wildflowers, natives,
indifferent to domestication
in a gust of wind,
fulfilling my future fruitfully.
