Yucca  Bloom


Today, I saw a yucca bloom-

its beauty rising up from spines,

a flower in a desert spot--

Reminding me of mother, gone.


Memories waft upon the air

with images of yucca bloom--

Reminding me of mother’s home

-She beautified a desert spot.


Ivory flowers graceful stand

much like my mother’s stately stance--

Today, I saw a yucca bloom

and wished that I could see again…


My childhood home with mother there

and songbirds singing in the air

Then-- sweetly on the singing breeze

the scent of yucca entered in.


Today, I saw a yucca bloom…

I remember rushing into the house, "MOM! There's a HUGE asparagus in the middle of your yucca plant!" Mom said it was just a flower, but when I kept insisting, she came out with me to see it. I know now it wasn't my insistence that drew her out. She so loved to see the miracle of blooming things. And there's something wholesomely magic with this particular bloom, the plant itself being so mundane-looking, yet its bloom so gorgeous.

Good write, Cryss. I can smell it from here. --Charlie

Very sweet and poignant with memory and the physical reality of what a yucca is like Cryssa. Well done. Now you have me thinking of my mother........Jerry

A lovely write.

I love the interlinking language and cascade of thoughts here, Cryssa, which suit your form very well. This is tender as tendrils yet sturdy with resiliance! The timelessness of the plant as it blooms has the ability to transport us back in both time and place, making precious memories as vivid as an experience in the here and now. Lovely merger of feeling with sense. Long may that yucca continue in her life of renewed colour and fond remembrances. xx

Cryssa - Loved the way this poems revolves memories, longing and personality around the image of the yucca bloom. - David
