Humanizing Wednesday: The Wind and the Petunias

Sitting on my deck one day

I noticed the hanging purple petunias

they seemed to be laughing with glee

at the wind, who made the flower pot dance

The wind, it turned out,

was telling the flowers a funny story

sometimes he would come closer to them

and they would bob their heads up and down

laughing singly and with their petunia friends

(their blossoms would blow sideways when they were sharing the joke with their friends)

As the laughter died down

and the petunias didn’t move too much anymore

the pot stopped spinning on its hook

and the wind decided to go somewhere else

to tell his funny stories

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
