April 13: Beautiful Hibiscus

A dear rose mallow blossom

Is a beautiful one-day flower

That is simply awesome

When it blooms to empower

With glossy deep green leaves

Of tropical hibiscus trees.

They traveled from China to Florida

For de la Vida!

Beautiful hibiscus

Blossoms will get you out of the woo-s.

Pink, orange, and red,

Sometimes, they leave me unsaid.

Coffee and bread,

Hibiscus crown head

At my window,

Bring peace to endow.

The flower's attractiveness beauty

Amuses the sweet heart cookie.

Ida Tomshinsky, c.2009
