I got tons of flowers for Valentine’s Day!
Not a bunch of pricey roses or tulips
in an ornate vase,
but bursts of color around every corner,
like this delicate pink wonder
with its perfectly-placed speckles.

Such a welcome sight
for a girl spending a week away
from the frozen tundra!
I suspect the greenery
and gorgeous flowers
might fade into the background
for people who live
in warmer climates year-round.
They know not how lucky they are.
