POEM: Flower Market

Taken in September of 2013 in Bangalore at K.R. Market

Garland coils in saffron and yellow.
Burlap bags of loose blooms in many hues.
Free petals strewn across the floor.

Vendors sit like stamen, still amid the chaos.
Customers waft around like pollen on the wind.
And workers flit about like industrious bees.

Taken on August 16, 2018 in Chicago.

Fun Fact: This park was to be called Central Park until President James Garfield was assassinated. (Not so fun a fact for Garfield, but he did get a park named after him. Not the most illustrious of parks, but then again he wasn’t the most illustrious of Presidents. Ironically, Garfield Park has a very nice sculpture of Lincoln, a much more highly lauded President with a vastly more impressive Chicago Park.
