Of many petals down


Of many petals down,
this life is still profound
when the naked stem
is held.

This is beautiful, William. I've seen so many "petals" fall around me but thankfully there are many young buds ready to flower as long as they have strong support~

And so it goes, Jan, and so we go. Many thanks, dear friend.

Inside Flowers

Inside flowers, outside cold
rain and icy, killing early buds,
but here, inside, still warm
with flowers on the table,
still Spring and young.

Inside flowers pollen grows
for honeybees and butterflies.
Inside skulls still warm and sunny,
with flowers on the table
nothing ever dies.

Sweet scents fruit the breeze,
nectar flows for hummingbirds,
colors for the eye. Still warm,
flowers on the table, inside people
outside old.
