Snow White Seeds

Aster Seed Pods

Winter Queen Snow-White,
Reigning over gardens past,
Spreading seeds near and far:
Tiny spin-drift wind-sailing
Sprites, tiny bits of last year,
Carried through cold to the next,
Come fill my garden with purple,
Amber and russet possibility.

  2. I am so glad you shared this poem about the asters snow white seeds and love the way you included the colors of asters, too. I usually think of lavender or purple, but you are so right, russet and amber are also lovely colors. I like to imagine their seeds growing up into the flowering plants.

  4. I love that last line: Come fill my garden with purple,
    Amber and Russet possibility. So many different hues of possibilities in life, aren’t there? πŸ™‚
