Poem Spark Jun 9-23: Poems about flowers

Greetings and Salutations!

Now that summer has blanketed the east coast with the first heat wave of the season, I’ve been thinking about how much my garden is appreciating the warmth and rains. The roses are in full bloom and my lavender is just about ready to crack open those beautiful buds. Everywhere I look, something is blooming. What better poem spark to do than write about the flowers?

On Poets.org’s front page I followed a link to Poems about Flowers. Here are a few of the ones I liked best:

Deborah Digges Telling the Bees

H. D. At Baia

William Shakespeare My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun

Your poem spark: write a flower poem.

Here are some photos to help you along: Flowers on Flickr. Good luck!
