Bright imitations

However brilliant and colorful
our creations may be --
however original this clever use
of rebar and glass --
surely we can see
that all our beautifully crafted works
are mere pale imitations
of the glory that surrounds us --
the volunteer iris that surprise us every spring;
the resourceful fennel,
whose fragrance and flavors bless us all year round;
the gracious rosemary,
adding her flippant purple sparks
to everything from spaghetti to lemonade...
Blessings everywhere.
