From the Flowers

image

(painting by Stanley Spencer)

In your hubris you
think I bloom for only you
that I exist to
color your world
perfume your air
You are so bold to
pluck me from my
roots, bundle me,
present me as
a gift from you
But I bloom for
myself alone
even the birds and
the bees do not
own me
My scent and hue
are secrets you
can never know
though you may try
I am a world unto
myself
and I hold the universe
in a single seed

Mag 306 is this panting of Christ in the Wilderness by Stanely Spencer
