A Crack in the Decorum of a Garden

I watch the tulips
and encourage them
to open and stand tall
     Please don't slouch
     or bend down until
     you touch the earth
     with your colorful petals
I expect it's hard
to stay put, unable
to ramble to other gardens
I wince when I think
of staying in one spot,
tethered to the same soil

April PAD Challenge
Use three words--crack, ramble, wince in a poem
