A flower's bud is pure memory
A few days before, I spot these familiar buds -- tight pods of color -- and I think peonies. The rational mind shouts "impossible, if not improbable." Childhood is marked by a hedge of peonies and ants. Vivid memory -- 60 years, plus. Ha, again and this time --factual. Indeed, multiple peony plants. I'm in heaven as I recall my first favorite food & author. If you guessed, cheeseburger and Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, we're in sync.
