Poem: Pickling Flowers


Don’t worry which.
Pick any of them.
They are all beautiful.

About this poem

How often do we fret over choices, when the truth is, most of the time, any choice will end up just fine?

Oh, and about flowers.



  1. The picture is of Daisy-Flea-Bane, used in Centuries past to litter the house floors. They are a repellant , and thus discourage rodents pets, who transmitted the plague. .Appropriate enough ,for the day…They are common, and durable – an enduring poem themselves.

  2. Tom, I have no recollection of when I first read a poem of yours. But, I’m glad I did.
    sometimes they remind me of KOANs
    thank you for sharing your gift with words on this blog

    • I had to look up KOANs, but thank you for the immense compliment! Thank you for reading, and for letting me know my words touched you. That is what all writers want, I think.
