AND THE ASSIGNMENT IS: Our prompt (optional, as always). Poets have been writing about flowers since the dawn of time. Today, the challenge is to add your own poem to this long tradition, by finding a flower, and versifying in its honor. Happy writing! — taken from www.napowrimo.net
You can find them in The Rockies and many a country lane; The little bright-pink flower that answers to more than one name. It's been since 1930, Alberta's sweet, little flower; Symbolic of diversity, teamwork and power -- So pale in May, and pink in June, then turn an August red; With the brightest golden-yellow at the center of its head.
