Lotus, Poppy, Rose, and Snowdrop Lotus flower your perfect beauty springs from muddy water that soon must take you back. You now stand naked in the field your petals lost and gone. And what the world can do with you, might make you shed a tear. Proud Beauty, perfect rose. In summer, winter waits. Pretty little snowdrop, show off while you can. Beneath the melting snow the bluebells wait in line.
Honorable Mention, as a series of unrhymed quatrains in the As the Flowers Bloom Competition in Sol Magazine Spring Edition, 2006.
