Fantastic Flora Masquerade

Creeping creepy creepers, the crawling trellis
jutting out of everywhere
snaking through country and metropolis
twisting turning in floral bliss
but more like snakes that hiss
But in quietude feign death for self-defense! 

Weeping willows with an unreal surreal sorrow
weeping tears of dew onto the silted furrow.
Perhaps weeping for bretheren felled
in deforestations and land clearings in
my imaginations of the call to preservation.
Against ethnic cleansing of greenery for selfish building
As per man's construction for mere recreation

Velvety-green tear- stained faces or rather foliage
When dew is stuck on them as nature's trinkets of pearls.

And over there touch-me-nots swaying coyly
like prim and proper maidens
in the fantastic floral gardens.

And what in the world is this case? 
Imitation flowery in place of imitation jewellery? 
Yeah, thats poinsettia in a vase
Leaves in the disguise of flowers
Its actual flowers relegated to backstage.

And ethereal fairy-slippers await their never coming wearers
and Indian pipes to be admired by Red Indian sightseers.

Oh and here's another spectacle- but sniper tactics this time
Yikes! Let the naive insect world beware! 
Whilst the bloodthirsty killers lie in ambush
Those camouflaged jungle guerrillas
or should we say the venus fly-traps! 

Or a more harmless one yet mimicking the scary
A snap-dragon flora, its mouth opening and snapping shut.

Then watch that mega-sized jumbo giant flora
The world's largest flower
No stems, no leaves, plant-eater plant, rafflesia.
Is it too much for the faint-hearted ha ha.

And wow now watch that incredible costume, oh my! 
A flower masked as some pesky fly! 
None other than the remarkable fly orchid.

And yet another, the silent music of the fiddlenecks
Fiddles as if for the light-weight fairies.

And lastly not forgetting ofcourse
the sky-blue unforgettable forget-me-nots
A memorable bouquet but themselves devoid of memory.

Ah nature lover poets if you wish to view
more of flora in a fancy dress masquerade
Go ahead and flip through the pages of
a botanical, floral
pictorial journal.
And see for yourself the fantastic flora's charade
or else imagine them dressed as a floral renegade!

    Fantastic!...What better word to describe this poem, Zayneb! Your descriptive ability and style together with patches of alliteration and botanic knowledge tempt me to bring forth paint and brushes to compliment your words. Congrats on p.o.t.d. // paul

    Imitation flowers do not produce the same ooohs and ahhh from those who see them. You described beautifully many of my favorite species in your floral parade. Orchids and forget-me-nots are quite popular here in Florida. A lovely poem, my friend!

    Relieved to know it's in a magazine and not your garden, otherwise it would make for a scary walk. Congratulations for POTD honors...

    It was fun reading it aloud because of your wordplay... Outstanding! It's inevitable that humans will fit for greed!

    More and more we destroy the beauty of nature with what some consider progress, to me, leave the lands alone for now, enough is enough or indeed the only place we will see the beauty of nature will be in books. Nicely expressed.

    A very interesting poem that is very deep in thoughts. Pity that man has managed to destroy creation.

    If mankind was left unchecked for another hundred years what would be left? Divine intervention is what is needed, before planet earth becomes a plasticized replica of what once was
