Today's Flowers Photos and Poetry

If I were a leaf
clinging to your branches
I would embrace your twigs
caress your trunk
and bury myself in your roots
never to let go.

If I were a flower bud
waking to bloom
and debut my heart
I would call the birds
and reveal my sweet nectar.

If I were soft petals
displaying my finery
around your heart
I would kiss your stems
with scented dew drops.

All photos taken at the San Francisco Botanical Garden.
