This book of botanical images
in sepia depict the petals, veins, leaves
of exotic plants.  Listed alphabetically are illustrations
with a reader's favorites’ marked with string;
carefully indexed, scientific, dun-drab
they conceal the dream of translucent petals,
leaves that reflect green light, adaptive roots.

In idle fancy, a dreamlike flower unfolds
upright from the page.

Cool way to get inspired! I feel like it belongs in some fantasy novel, it was very unique. The last two lines are my favorite though ... it's like a fantasy-esque haiku almost.
