Blue Columbine Flower of Colorado

Finally ran into a stamp where the poem didn’t just flow out. It is probably because I have not had the pleasure of going to Colorado. Never daunted, though, a little research and a lot of admiration for wild flowers produced a sweet little poem. Now, the home of Pike’s Peak, Colorado, is on my bucket list. Enjoy the poem!

Blue Columbine Flower of Colorado

Sweet little Columbine of Colorado
Blue as sky, white as snow,
with gold lurking inside.
Delicate contrast to
rocky crags and sharp topography
is this wild flower
whose genius means eagle.
Petal “claws” mimic
mighty talons gliding updrafts
in that high clear sky.

Tiny Columbine
like tiny houses
gracing mountain fields
in the land of resources
land of old miners,
young hipsters,
weed, and ski.
