Napowrimo #1: Magnolia Waiting

I am showing my poetry a little love this month by taking part in NaPoWriMo, and writing a poem each day for the month of April. Here’s number one, about the magnolia tree I watch every day from my window.

Magnolia Waiting

A hint of pink flashes
in budding April breeze,
gentle sway suggests
just enough; a hint of opening.

She is waiting. Patience
protects a healing heart
from cruel frosts and bitter
winds that whip through uninvited.

Wandering eyes will miss
it all. Gentle attention day
after day will witness deep
blooming; a flowering from the heart.
