A flower for you

today in poetry class our inspiration to write was from a song
In These Arms by Jennifer Berezan and a blessing called
Bodhisattva Vow.
Here is my poem for you.

may I share equanimity for those in trauma
a flower essence to swallow on sleepless nights
pansies, petunias, poppies bright orange
yes, flowers are loyal lovers
chanting bells lulling the broken with lost dreams
into full vases of promises
I pause and pick a flower and gift it to you
May all beings be safe
