Squash Blossoms

For today’s prompt, pick a plant, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Pick a favorite vegetable or fruit, a flower, a tree, even a shrubbery.


Squash Blossoms

Why don’t we make bouquets
of squash blossoms?

Bright yellow Van Gogh stars
swirl in a deep green garden
sky, pistils and stamens
quivering in the breeze
to tease the bees.

In the language of flowers
what does an edible represent
when given to a lover?
