The Art of the Geranium

dear sweet geranium
too often abandoned, unloved and underfed

you are the unsung hero of the Mediterranean
as you flourish and thrive on a breath of sunshine 
and hint of rain
your tenacity is admirable
as your colours flare outrageously, and 
your scent of lemon with a hint of pepper 
intoxicates as it reflects off a hot summer wall you grow in awkward spaces
co-ordinate with all you see
and you’re designed to always look your best,
even as your petals fall
and if I were to say anything to you,
dear sweet geranium,  
it would be 
to always 
stand tall ….
for you are art
 …. pure art!
