Violet blooms


drink this cup
steeped of violet blooms, soothing  
 heart's bitter aches      


Legends of Violets


take these blooms-
hued of rain and spring love- 
yours to keep -

  5. Violet tea... I shall try! I have dozens of pressed violets I've dried and saved over the years. One day I shall use them in a fitting piece of art. And the yellow in the prompt's accompanying encaustic? Dried, pressed flowers from my garden!
