Love Is Earth’s Sweetest Flower

written by: Charlie Bottle



Excising me from my antecedents,
the author transplanted me
in rich bitter dirt,
the harsh noon sun
and cold nights sought to wilt me,
and rains tried to drown me
but, I stayed rooted,
flowering in pungent dirt,
transmuting churlish hatred
as the author intended,
into Love’s sweetest gold,
proudly I stand, wearing my chartreuse crown.
