A Bloom of Hope
Something is eating my tulips.
I know we have lots of ants and potato bugs-
do those eat plants?
My mother-in-law said it might be snails. Gross.
I noticed it a few days ago and was discouraged,
because I've had problems growing flowers here.
Then, today, I saw this-
They're growing despite the stupid bugs.
They're my inspiration.
Ignore the afflictions, whatever is 'eating' you,
and bloom anyway.
