Two Short Poems

A flower opens its petals
every morning,
a new day begins.

The flower smiles at
the blue sky above,
it has no misgivings.

The garden does not weep
for yesterday's flowers,
it forgets.

It is a mistake to believe
in things bigger
than the grass,
fallen apples
and the wind.

It is Day 22 in NaPoWriMo. After yesterday's struggle with the "New York School" poem, I craved simplicity. Today's April PAD challenge was to write either an optimistic or a pessimistic poem. I am not sure which category these two poems fall into. You decide.
