NPM 11 / 30

Getting in the one I missed. Will owe 24 & 25 tomorrow.

Speak to Me

everyone knows a rose
symbolizes love
gushes it from its plentiful petals
to its thorny stem

however a small sachet of lavender
signals distrust
not even its heady scent
can sway suspicion
slip it to a shady soul

for artists, plant a fig tree
to stay prolific
find lupine for imagination
angelica for inspiration

and if love is the message
say it with myrtle
let Spanish jasmine sing sensually
while vervain suggests enchantment

I’ll settle for a humble clutch of oat flowers
that speak of the witching soul of music
a bundle of oak-leaved geranium
to symbolize true friendship
