Peony

We kneel before her beauty,
dear equinox creature –
pressed to the earth,
seeking her scent
beneath peeking petticoats –
we feel glee, regaled.

She believes in eternity not
entropy, hectors the earth
– fertilize me! perpetually.
Yet, despite fealty,
she expires, petal by petal –
evanescent – earthward.

  1. I’m with Anna. Such a beautiful photo of one of my favorite flowers! Also love the ranunculus species and camellias. Anything with lots of petals! Thanks Susanne!
