The Flower

You are the flower that every raindrop seeks
So lucky to fall near your petals
Brazenly claiming to nourish your tender buds
When truly the flower is the gift to the rain
Your radiant beauty inspires fields of wildflowers
Spreading joy like seeds upon the wind
Rejuvenating barren soil so many miles from your stem
Restoring the dark, coffee smell of life to the earth
“Quiero hacer contigo
 lo que la primavera hace con los cerezos”
“I want to do with you
 what spring does with the cherry blossoms”
To be worthy of your thirst …
to feed your gentle leaves …
to revel with you in your bloom
