father: you and your wildflowers

father I had a dream 
that you planted wildflower seeds
all around the edge of that ancient bog 
we travelled to that day 

father in my dream
those seeds you sowed grew
and the flowers bloomed straight away
a beautiful sight to behold

and father, later after I woke up 
I went downstairs to find
in a vase on the dining room table
a handful of 
mismatched wildflowers
