The Purple Blossom This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

July 23, 2010
A purple flower
Sits on a white windowsill.
Lone, but beautiful.

A vibrant purple,
Upon a stunning green stalk
In a silver pot.

The burst of color
In the white hospital room
Brings joy to the girl.

She is alone.
Unable to play outside
On a sunny day.

A friend sent the bloom
One day, during a visit.
The one friend to come.

But when the friend left,
The flower stayed beautiful.
Lone, but beautiful.
