With bright petals
and bitter-sweet scents,
you body lures insects
(and scorpios)
to your pollen-filled centers.
Over millions of years,
you evolved into a transparent
flowering plant
producing blooms of different shapes
and colours –
Your moods compete with one another
for the attention of my eye,
of my December clouds,
my wet-in-wet,
my moonlight leaves
your leaves of tears,
leaves of summer…
