not always sure and yet I know

not always sure
when one flower
leaves the stage
and another begins
I look up from a page
or from the kitchen window
and purple phlox are gone
daylilies and hosta soon

not always sure
and yet I know
in winter
how gardens
will grow in time
from frozen earth
to snowdrops
lilies and goldenrod

new flowers

new flowers
from a store
in the blue vase
three yellow roses
and three red carnations

one bouquet
and each flower and leaf
has its own space
a painting by the
window on a grey day
