“Zinnias at the Fence”

After reading my post yesterday about zinnias, my cousin (and beautiful friend) Murray Dennis sent me a poem she wrote, saying, “Just sending this as something sort of silly, some neighbors down the street also have zinnias and I wrote this for them . . . It goes along with a picture I took of their fence.”

I loved the poem, and asked her if I could share it. I found the best picture I could to go with it. –




“Zinnias at the Fence” By Murray Dennis


“Petaled Riots of happy
Orange. . .Purple . . Yellow . . .Red

Growing . . .
flowing in abundance
from a dappled flower

Sneaking . . . Peeking . . .
Through picket fences
Touching all the tender

What a treat
For eager eyes.
A visual shout!
A quiet prize!”
