Be Wildflower – a poem by Melanie Green

Be Wildflower

Be wildflower,
meadow dally
and revel
bright.

Be rock,
particle
and particular.

Be river,
rhythm and
stir.

Be sky,
blue thrive,
ease
and immensities.

Let sorrow
come.

And let
sorrow scatter
to the wind.

Be cello,
kneel
with the old
angel.
