Flowers Wish Not

Flowers wish not

for the raindrops

to detach;

petals cling to

brief love affairs

in the fleeting overcast.

Time and gravity

and even sun

seem against them,

pull apart

the bonds.

But sometimes

a flower

simply loves

the rain,

the way

so naturally

both simultaneously

bloom and glisten

when so tenderly

embraced.
