Two-Faced

Violetta

Two Faced

Pretty Violetta

Tell me how you get a

Smart two-toned complexion

There in your mid-section?

.

Each day we never know

Which face you’ll choose to show

Perhaps withdrawn and shy

Or frankly bold and spry?

.

Just bobbing in the breeze

In shade beneath the trees

Your beauty still displayed

Seems winter’s been delayed

.

Little Violetta

Now how did you get a

Smart two-toned complexion

There in your mid-section?

.

post script: The name of the elusive plant in my recent post Flower Power, is Wishbone Flower, Torenia fournieri.

Thank you to Midwestern Plant Girl, who lived up to her name and identified the flower for me.

    Beautiful poem… I particularly liked the second stanza… it made me think how we also change faces/masks .. and we do it daily… 🙂
    All the best to you!, Aquileana 😀

      Thank you 🙂
      Well, as they say, it’s all Location Location Location! 🙂 I plant these in the shaded flower bed, so they see very little sun. And yeah, temps are below 20C now! 🙂
