The Prettier Flowers Of The Field

Poem By Lazarus Knix

The prettier flowers of the field
Toss their blue bell blossoms
In a sea of sweeping grass.

Numerous frayed shades
Of carnation yellow-reds
Set this glade aflame.

Each one bends
Toward every footstep,
Begging to be taken.

Yet these prettier flowers
Have a destiny secure
As their gripping roots.

One within a yellow vase
Perched in a woman's bedroom-
Or gently lain where her true love rests.

So today, I pick a simpler flower-
To remind me what I am,
And what I should be.
