Short Poems: Hosta

Yesterday, I looked again at the hosta in the sun, and was inspired to create a post.

this day’s light
hummingbird finds
the hosta

with pink edges

hosta flowers
begin to end
yet knowing
their leaves
will turn gold

on hosta plants

so beautiful
with and without

their leaves
in the sun

stems in the snow
in early morning light
not bereft of summer beauty
they shine

“For thou art my hope,
O Lord GOD:
thou art my trust
from my youth.”

Psalm 71: 5 (KJV)

early morning
hosta flowers grow
above the windowsill
