The Language of Flowers

In my garden, I will plant lavender
for serenity, grace, and calmness.
Lily of the valley reckons
the return of happiness.
The scent of rosemary
exudes remembrance.
Health and long life…
sage’s gift.
Oh how
sweet!

On vacation, I have been reading The Language of Flowers, a novel by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.  As a result, I have been reading more about the history and romance of the meaning of flowers.  I knew there was a reason they spoke to me.
