On a thorny stalk

wrapped in leafy veins

heavy with the burden

of viscous dew

for the love of light her

corolla lifts upright

a broad faced still life

anchored to the earth

she tracks the sun across

an unpredictable sky

At dusk she combs the air

with sweetness retreating

at twilight into

pearly pools of the moon.
