What do you do when you come across
A traffic-light of a plant?
To stop, or further to thrive and grow…
What does the plant really want?
I passed this plant,
My eyes went pop…
The rest of it was green,
But this leaf made me stop!
Sometimes,one can be just a leaf
Amongst many others, several hundred…
And yet, quietly show how one can
Be different…by being red!
Delmar Blvd, U City, St. Louis, 010713. This was a small plant in a bed of grass on the pavement as I walked along.
