Mind yourself: a poem

One must have a mind of a zinnia

Opening later than other blooms

But lasting way past the first frost.

Set your face to the sun

And don’t look down

Even when the night falls.

Stand tall in the pelting rain

Perfect petals in neat, straight rows.

Yes, one must have a mind of a zinnia.

Thanks to Tweet Speak Poetry for the prompt!

    1. Thank you so much!! I actually have a collection that released this summer called Fireflies. And I’m working on a second one! Poetry was always my first writing love.
