Fall Asters


Small blue asters bloom in fields, and

Along the fences designed to keep

Creatures from reaching the Interstate.

They bloom unasked, uncalled,

Spreading their small blue flowers

Upon their branches with an abundance

Whose best simile is divine grace.


Abundant small blue asters

In fields and along fences,

Accepting, giving, in their own small blue way

Abundant grace.
