Mesmerizing Fuchsia

This photo was taken by my daughter, on a walk in her neighborhood. It prompted a delightful visit with the gardener, who was so kind and lively, my daughter asked me to write a poem for her. I love inspiration from nature, especially flowers, yet even more, from the souls behind them. I am honored to write this poem for such a kindhearted neighbor. I wish her well, and many more safe and happy years behind the enchantment of the Fuchsia!

Mesmerizing Fuchsia

*

Petal-pink ballgowns drape.

They dance in cool winds,

stamen toes twirl magic

for the spellbound onlooker.

*

Bough bound performers leap,

plié amid the garden, provide

bewilderment for evil ones,

enchanted guardians of home.

*

It is said the fuchsia protects,

first springing from the blood

at the base of the cross, offering

blessings to each new bride.

*

Humble and entrusted love

rests on the fuchsia plant,

as she and her foliage sway,

frolic on forever more.
