Let me tell you about Humboldt Lily.
Joni Mitchell never went to Woodstock.
The sun touches your arm, distance be damned.
Wild flowers tame the meadow rustic.
Colors that are pleasing and seasonal
arrive on schedule just to surprise
our sense of joy and wide-eyed wonder.
High fives in the field, a sign of hope.
That it was not all a dream we forgot.
