My goal for Poetry Month: TINY THINGS. My choices may surprise you, and I'm excited to write, share, and read how everyone writes to meet their special goals for celebrating poetry month.There is nothing nicer than having a lilac shrub in my garden, and nothing sweeter than smelling them and remembering rooms filled with lilacs when I grew up. I researched them, learning that the usual ones we see often are Syringa vulgaris, or common lilac.
The flowers are arranged in what are termed panicles, which are clusters of flowers in an inflorescence (not fluorescence) which in turn are blooms arranged around one main stem. The lilac is New Hampshire's state flower, chosen "because it "is symbolic of that hardy character of the men and women of the Granite State"." according to an article from Wikipedia.
a lilac bloom’s spring devotion
among deep green heartshapes,
wee florets in motion
tiny horns play a perfumed air
invite bees and butterflies
to join the party there
