Kalanchoe

Kalanchoe

   bunches of tiny 
      white dreams:
flowers, bundled
like tiny bouquets,

      they come
from far away,
across a world.

(we never saw
them disembark
      the plane.)


they say the
dream business will
not be the same.

we cannot fly,
the virus 
clipped our wings.

      sunny 
destinations
   live only in
our dreams.

nothing is certain,
      everything 
   has changed.

   our world was
such a wonder,
but now that's
      rearranged.

  1. Kalanchoe, or kal-un-KOH-ee, or kal-un-kee, also written Kalanchöe or Kalanchoë, so sweet no matter the accent or pronunciation, they are just cute and extremely easy to care for, they don’t demand much from us. Glossy thick leaves full of sap don’t mind the heat and the sunshine and a popular succulent houseplant sometimes referred to as the Flaming Katy. The white and green yes a lovely combination I love the reds and orange and yellow hues as well. They fit in any room of the house, well drained where the heat and sunshine streams in.
    That was so good, now to our changing or changed world, that will require so much attention from us, life was never certain just more stable we will have to find new ways to bring back the wonder.

    1. Thank you Abby!

      We see Kalanchoes as flowering gifts, usually about this time of year. Keeping them as a houseplant in our climate, where it will be a little too cool this time of year… Hmmm. Maybe, I wouldn’t even try it.

      1. Ok, she is robust, you know she survives in arid conditions so you can always create the climate , in a well sunlit room, hot but not too moist room, possibly afternoon and morning sun,….no need to procrastinate
