Arms stretched overhead
she sticks out her purple tongue,
hairy and yellow.
Her beauty teases
as she dances in the wind,
bending to no one.
Dainty and wispy
Lacy as a summer dress
The fourth sister knows proper grooming makes all the difference.
She maintains the wardrobe; out with the old and in with the new.
You may see her as temperamental, but she is one of the chosen few.
She knows the right color provides a perfect splash of vibrancy.
Give her a chance and she mixes well with others at the party
She leans toward the tender side as she is not frost hardy.
Feed her well. Give her what she needs. Shower her with riches.
She loves the sun, but needs a bit of shade to cool when she gets too hot.
Give her space and if she drinks too much, let her drain so her roots don’t rot.
The fourth sister is showy and likes to be noticed.
She might disappear and suddenly return without a reason why.
Sometimes she just needs to soak in the rain and completely dry.
The fourth sister knows how to hold her own.
She can be the belle of the ball all summer long.
She will hold you in limb until she sings her song.
She lifts, blooms, and curtsies in a timely fashion.
She will lead the dance until the first frost of fall.
On being a geranium, the fourth sister knows it all.
Like ruffled sunshine
Love flows from within its core
Joy smiles upon us
Caught a ray of sun
Seized it tight within my fist
Held it to my heart
Was not mine to keep
Opened my hand to the sky
Passing it to you
