A Simple Exhortation

There is an exhortation
We should not take for-granted
To bloom with exaltation
Wherever we’re planted

© Janet Martin

A few years ago a friend gave me portulaca flowers.
Now, every year they re-seed and come up wherever the seeds fall,
blooming vibrantly when many other flowers have begun to fade…


  1. Yuriy: It's friendly mood and propitious space and devoted care of the same and auspicious time granted by earth and the unity - all these make us burst in bloom again - as flowers.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
