First Line: Begin with this
Last Line: Of flowers. Am I dreaming?
Subject(s): Flowers; Peace

Begin with this?
Raise flowers in everybody's heart.
People will bend their heads
to breath in the odor
of their lives: a world
of flower-growers. Then
with heads raised, place flowers
at the hearts of others
to breathe in the odor
of flowers. Am I dreaming?
