From a Flower’s Perspective


Wind tossing.


  Evolved under Harvest Moon.

Dressed the virgin dawn

  with the petal spills

of my silent bloom,

  from such singular awakening . . .


I am soft-Fuchsia in my


  that ended its Song to

possessive Bees.


What looks upon me

  is a Child who

stops to study

the folds of velvet enwrapping

  me . . .


  He touches lightly, at first

then I am ripped from my roots

and see not his face


  wince at the Sweet fragrance of

my Death.
