Anemones are the symbols of anticipation and fragility. Daffy bent down suddenly, and picked a small startled white flower. “Anemone,” he said, handing it over; he made her repeat the word until she had it right. “Find me a silk to match that.” —Emma Donoghue INSIDE GARDEN OF ANEMONES inside garden — its wiggle of ultra fine threads, pastel blue and pink wormy stems. full-frontal petals, contiguous. blossom’s cerulean, buttercup and bittersweet. the velvet sky, black. its vibrant neon flowers bright, float in the canvas-night, though a few, unopened, droop like indian pipes. spread of unscented paint — dry, flat, spurning soil, a floral garden surrounded by a golden frame. its wall is white. 3/12/2021 Flower or Flowers in Imagism Form Sponsor: Constance La France anemone — pronounced “uh nem uh nee”
