MISSING THE FLOWERS
I’m glad it was so hard, our climb, because if it hadn’t been,
If it had been an easy climb or we had used a chair-lift
I would have missed the flowers,
They were a while back, sandwiched between rocks and shrubs
And it was only by chance that I stumbled upon their hiding place.
They were beautiful.
The time to cover the distance would have been shorter,
The effort I exerted would have been less and I wouldn’t have smelled as bad,
But I certainly would have missed the flowers.
I saw them, I photographed them
And now I have the image of them in my head,
I hold their memory in my memory.
I’m so glad it was a tough climb, and it was such a long way.
I’m so glad I didn’t miss the Flowers.
