The old trellis

leans against the time-weathered window.

Rudbeckia crowds reach their faces upward–

their brown gumdrop centers

encircled by petals like yellow sun rays.

These bursting blooms endure across years and shout

Even when

No one lingers to witness such glory.

May I pass by and stop.

This week’s Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted by Molly at https://nixthecomfortzone.com/. Be sure to stop by and enjoy a bit of summertime poetry!
