Birthing suns rise and open-

Exploding even-

Almost like clarity

one achieves when the moment is right

Displaying to the world

This is who I am

Blooming stalks are collected,

and held and cared for-

Put in a vessel-

Where thoughts, memories

sit in water;

Kept alive, but not forever


Displaying to the world

This is who I am

The shape and scent

of yellow-

catches the eye-

A lightness of being

Displaying to the world.
