The Last Bloom

 

Gladiola, single

and late for the fair,

your time has come

to grace my garden party.

 

Your colorful kin,

long faded and snipped,

have returned to the earth,

for the next generation.

 

But here you are,

long past the bountiful season,

offering a reason to hope

for all of us late bloomers.
