Oriental lilies



Coaxed into glory,
Long are the days.
Opening petals,
Fuchsia ballet.

Flowers in winter,
Nourish the soul.
Waxy perfection,
Anthers of kohl.

Shy ones and bold ones,
Perfume the air.
Fluted umbrellas,
Beauty beware.

Poison that lingers,
Hidden from view.
Pearlescent sepals,
Shiny and new.

Whimsical trumpets,
Set in a vase.
Spilling, cavorting,
Dust of the stars.
