An Expression of Gratitude

An expression of gratitude extended
to a house plant who lived in a prosaic pot
which sat atop a lonely window sill

along the cold and dark stairwell
that was peculiarly quiet during the usual hours
when the whispers of the seldom blossom was heard

The flower said, ‘Have a good day please’
and the nonchalant foliage languidly
greeted even the most modest breeze.

often i walked past, brooding as it would be
so thank you this time dear
for always watching over me.
