I thought I'd leave the "amjors" long enough to drop some sweet petals on this sweet place. I wrote this poem a few days ago. Hope you all enjoy it.
-how to appreciate flowers-
cluster of flowers weighed
down in mud.
leaves glistening, crumbs
of dirt darkening,
sliding down the leaves.
stems pushing forward, down, out,
a wish in view.
head gentle, curling, uncurling,
folded along velvetcell lines.
a small green pedestal
of complete slow adoration
-- physical neediness to be loved --
balancing a centered silken heart.
fragrance, aroma of sweet
exhale, perfume natural,
scent slightly insistent.
cupped in invisible hands,
waterstraw through a central vase.
florescent molecules collecting,
brightening the tabletop, piano or cabinet.
or among its own,
the green and the colorful,
the world's many fragiled heart
awake and opensmiling.
