P is for Passion Flower

Photograph by Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

A gift of love
a gift of light
A gift of how
our life could be

Fiery red blooms
start off small and shy
Burst open with color
beneath a hot sky

Summer winds are welcome
to cool our Passion Flower
Summer nights cherished
rejuvenating rain showers

With each day that passes
the blooms grow more profuse
Reflecting love and laughter
more and more effuse
