The Surprise

My aunt, she is a gardener

Her green fingers are extraordinary

She gave me this dreary plant

Long leafed and quite ordinary

There was nothing that exciting

About the lanky plant in basket

Until I opened up the door one day

And my mind was blown completely away

This brilliant flower graced my view.

Several hanging baskets later

My aunt’s green thumb has not dissipated

Heaps of differently beautiful flowers

Now exist in my hanging baskets.
