we take wildflowers
replant them in love’s garden
sometimes they wither
with longing for lost freedom
but oh, how they can blossom!

My response to Carpe Diem #1729 Wildflower variety: Use That Quote
Today we have a quote from the Persian poet Rumi to work with:
“There are as many ways of loving as there are people, and that wildflower variety is the great beauty of this dimension of existence.”
The challenge is to create a haiku, tanka or other form of Japanese poetry, which is about love and wildflowers.
