Shades Of Columbine

I Googled "columbine" to combine perhaps
some gen to that already privy to my mind,
to research a bit and see what I might find.
What offered first, such things which trend,
was of course all about the awful shooting
routing one to every grim detail of horrors
off the scale. I felt then disinclined to bend
towards more knowledge of the tragic sad
outcome of a people’s constitutional right.
Preferring to uproot a subject that’s sweet.
Delightful and flighty flower so named after
its resemblance to one lovey-dovey covey
of doves a bird symbolical and of a feather
with Peace. Am inclined to tweet on Twitter
to any who care to listen: "hashtag irony."

The dastardly duo's dealings at Columbine

will repine in favour of Nature's floral finery.

I was thinking only of shades of the columbine flower, now in bloom outside my door.

I will return to that thought.
