A Flower Song
By Leann Marshall

Cares not where she is planted, nor

What might there be to gain

Lives all her days in beauty

Visions love’s most gentle rains


Roots lie deep within the soil

Yet she stretches for the sky

And she nurtures those around her

With a grace ne’er to belie


As with everything held precious

No different then, is she:

Though no blossom lasts forever

All her love will ever Be.

The gift of a mother's love is something forever held special, wrapped in soft tissue, and stowed in it's own special place in our hearts. You captured so well the wonderful soul of this woman who was your mother and painted a perfect picture of your shared love with your words.

Reviewed by Regis Auffray 5/18/2009
A fine tribute in the form of a meaningful metaphorical offering; thank you for sharing it, Leann. Love and best wishes to you,

Dear Leann :

I love how you intertwine & weave the beauty of a woman
with the beauty of a blooming plant.

Anything & whatever you write is written very well.
Just like The Starfish People, you masterfully intertwine
and weave a story or tale.

In my opinion you are up there with the best,
and will make a name for yourself.

Keep up the great work.

Stephen Pollard
