The Blue Flower

Blue wildflowers grow
in my yard.

Sometimes there are hundreds of them,
giving the overall yard
a blue appearance
when looked at from a distance.
Sometimes I plant other flowers around them
of different colors and sizes and textures
to provide some variety.
Sometimes I pick them one by one,
trying my best to get rid of them
so that there is only yellow, green, red, purple.
So that no blue can be seen.

But there is always at least one
blue flower
that stubbornly grows back.
