An orchid’s petals

Like humans, each is unique

No two are alike

July 25

Small little flowers

Remind to appreciate

Everything in life

July 24

In the morning light

Fortunate to take deep breaths

Inhale life’s fragrance

July 23

July 21

Calm serenity

Plumerias face the sun

Soaking up its warmth

July 8


Colorful leaves with flowers

Like poinsettia

July 6

If flowers could speak

I know she’d say “Lift me up;

Brighten up a day.”

Fragrance a plenty

Emits from magnolias

Powerfully sweet

Bright yellow Oncidium

Or popcorn orchid

Everything will end

On earth and around the world

But love will remain

Flowers congregate

United, they are stronger

One purpose, one goal

Demeanors can change

when one sees a sunflower

Ear to ear, smiling

A backlit flower

Creates a unique design

Just at the right time

The plant ‘ōhia

Can find life on a tree stump

Of its own likeness

A flower cluster

Where little ones closely cling

Just like family

Blossoming beauty

Like each and every person

When in their own time

A nature’s gift when

Flowers take on a bell shape

Feeding your senses

Serves kindly as a surface

For caterpillars

The present moment

Dwell here, breathing in and out

Calm body and mind

(Inspired by quote from Thich Nhat Hanh)

To wake each morning

With reset abilities

Grateful for my life

May 31

Life deals many cards

The ace, the queen or the deuce

Play each carefully

Bouquet for a friend

Agapanthus and daisies

Made with lots of love

Petals so perfect

Reminding me of a windmill

I'm tempted to spin

More yellow flowers

Simple, intricate, unique

Nature's gift to us

May 24, 2022

The color yellow

Nota hue worn often, yet

Flowers abundant

Here's some old advice

"Take time to smell the roses."

Very wise saying

When a flower's shape

Takes on the shape of a heart

You receive two gifts

(May 19, 2022)

Lightly touched-up pink

Chrysanthemums on display

Made to warm one's heart

(May 18, 2022)

Traversing along

"Oh, the places you will go"

Said by Dr. Seuss

(May 16, 2022)

Like this butterfly

Let us be kind and gentle

Grateful for this life

(May 17, 2022)

Kokutan flower

Beautiful pink and white blossom

Very delicate

(May 15, 2022)

Relentless rainfall

Leave droplets by the hundreds

Flowers scream out, "Woah!"

Achieving true peace

Cannot be through violence

But by awareness

--Inspired by a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson

Lehua blossoms

Rich in beauty and color

Found near Peleʻs home

Fuchsia Zinnia

Is of the Sunflower tribe

Daisy family
