He hath made everything beautiful in his rejoice and to do good in life...Ecclesiastes 3:11-12

The great Dahlia
Not only finds room
To fully bloom...
After awakening
From a tiny size
In its flower bed...
But it is wise
As it dresses
and impresses
Wearing crimson red!
Poetry by me, AJP

    Thank you all for your nice comments..The brilliancy of the red dahlias are some of my favorite flowers because of the largeness of the flower head.
