Weeds

 

Everyone drives
by the wild and wonderful
colorful and simple
Speeding through their day
from place to place
from face to face
never taking time
to see
the interesting
unusual
beauty

Works of art
living or not
flat and glossy
painted and decorated
attractive
decorative
austere

But the weeds
Simple stunning weeds
flawed and ignored
sing to my heart
bring interest to
the world
set the day apart
light my way
with true
lasting beauty
the beauty that stays
forever in your dreams
