Ditch Lilies

Bulbs thrown from wagon or carriage
on someone's journey across the south
in hopes of lightening the load

but they weren't lost forever
come spring the ditches are in full bloom
from Georgia to Texas

a ditch can help us rememer
beauty doesn't go away even when discarded
it will be there for someone else to see

lilies in my great grandmother's garden
and my grandmother's garden
now in my mother's garden
and someday in mine
