Calling the Crocus

Calling the CrocusCrocus, spring, poetry


mysterious guests

perennial purple pods

blossoming with joy


I just learned that crocus is a perennial flower related to the iris family. I’ve always enjoyed these beautiful little flowers that pop up in surprise places. One home I rented had a front yard full of fall crocus, which blanketed the front yard in delicate orange blossoms each autumn. The home where I currently live has these beautiful purple crocus popping up in the vinca beds.
