Poetry Stretch Results - Inspired Image

This week's challenge was to write a poem to accompany this image.
I wrote the Fib below.
holding fast
to this well-worn place
sun-drenched and reaching for the sky
The picture seemed to inspire lots of folks this week, including quite a few newcomers, so welcome! I'm always amazed at how different the results can be, even when we're all focused on the same thing.
Sara Lewis Holmes gives us a poem entitled Flower in Tibet.

Laura Purdie Salas shares a poem entitled Just Breathe.

sister AE at Having Writ gives us Pink.

Ms. Mize shares an acrostic poem called Bloom.

M.F. Atkins at World of Words shares a haiku.

Daisybug at Things That Make Me Say ... gives us her brave attempt.

Paisley at Just Paisley has written a poem entitled desert{ed} flower.

Over at Words are My Life, the author shares a haiku.

Diane Davis shares an untitled poem.

Chelle at Snowshoe Diaries has written a series of haiku.

Cath at little cool shallows hasn't written a poem in a while, but is in big time withBlaspheme. She writes, "Warning: this poem does mention Jesus, Sex, Blaspheme, and a Vagina. If this sentence was offensive, do not read on." I read it, and so should you.
It's not too late to play. Does this image inspire you? If so, leave me a comment about your poem and I'll link it here. Feel free to post this image with your poem.
