Home on the Orange

On the rocky hillside next to my house are

Orange wildflowers.

In my official Guide

A volume over 300 pages long

Sectioned by color

Only four pages are devoted to orange blossoms.

Mine are identified as

Siberian Wallflowers

Which are related

Somewhat distantly

To cabbages.

They are fragrant and upright, not too tall

Heady and sweet in the sun.

I watch the bees

And the rocks.

I watch the flowers

Orange as rare as true love.
