Bright Flower - Poem

 


This summer I have been exploring writing. This is my poem of the day


Bright Flower


The bright red flower sustaining the dry heat 

Among the urban buildings short of green trees

Attractive to the driver’s eyes

When they wait for the traffic light to turn green 

Bright red petals bring a break

From the polluted air suffocating the burning streets
