a prayer for my little plant

my favorite plant

Hypoestes phyllostachya

wilted in the heat.

God sprayed

pink paint on each leaf…

such a beautiful

natural masterpiece.

my dear talk-less friend

I have had for years

on my front porch

many times

nearly dying

springing back

to life

as I watered it..

it was always

happy to see me

I felt its love.

I prayed it would

come alive just

one more time.

it didn’t.

there should

be no death

in life,

for there

is too much

sadness and not

enough happiness.
