Anemone japonica

_____________________________________

White Japanese Anemone blooms

When the days grow shorter

While lighting up garden rooms

Wonderful during the season’s third quarter

*

How lovely are these flowers

Happiness on a stem

Hanging on into colder hours

Heroic late season gem

*

Only people who dare traverse

Onto garden paths in fall

Open their eyes and are immersed

Oddly in the beauty of it all

*

Nearing the end of the season

Nifty leaves change their hues

No they’re not the only reason

Needed to get out and enjoy the view.
