Repost: Winter Flowering

Copyright 2012 by DM Denton

By the window

there’s a pot

of Paperwhites

as sweet

to the scent as

they are

to the sight;

one then two,


even four

and five of a kind

with their eyes

so bright,

some looking out


some looking in.

Hope this brings a little brightness and sweet flowering to you day.

As well as being a repost from last February, this is also a sampling from my book ‘A Friendship with Flowers’ that will be available in the near future.
