Flower of the Day – Home Grown Bouquet


Cee Neuner of Cee’s Photography has ‘Home Grown Bouquet’ as theme for today’s Flower of the Day.


I collected these a few days ago from my yard to form a simple flower arrangement. Today they seem just enough to pay tribute to Brussels victims, while complimenting my earlier poetic homage Victimized




A Victim

On blood and debris
Her suitcase lies scattered
Stunned by smoke and screams
She sees helpless lives blown to tatters
From her heart she curses the heartless haters
She knows for sure her life is changed forever
Blessing other scapegoats who are like her
She sadly mourns the death of humankind
Whose fault it is, who pays the price
Wonders why she was victimized ever

Prayers for all those who were victimized at Brussels! Some flowers too…
