If Not Now
This poem was inspired by one perfect white flower.
and post notes and photos about your poem like Suzanne Delaney.
If Not Now
Garlands draped and strung.
White creeper blossoms
reminiscent of snow
penta-hedron, vase shaped,
single bells. Five sepal-ed,
Such delicate geometry
predestined from a seed
Destiny, fate and duty
will always mock one another.
Power struggles between courage
and cowardice, rest in the lap of higher powers.
Increments, irrelevant to atoms.
All that will unfold
is manifest in flowers.
