Primrose

 

A Twenty Minutes poem.

Primrose

 

Let me ask you
Can a primrose in a yellow pot
– a purple primrose, if that detail helps you decide –
Can a purple primrose in a yellow pot
survive here, on my desk,
in January?
I need to know.

  1. Love the words. Love the tile. And the combination gives them both wonderful layers of meaning.
