Flower Girl Wonder

You savor nature's fragrant grace
wrench wildflowers round your face
immersed in purples, pinks, and greens
and rarely care what "normal" means

detached and yearning to become one
with meadows, mountains, morning sun
and rush bare legs through weeds and wheat
the wind your comb, your soul replete

to strive outside a world too tame
and hazard all to find your name.
