Where is a flower’s heart?
Its sap is blood;
Its stalk an artery pumping
Its leaves and petals with
Soil-sucked life.
But why, and how?
A flower is a heart of hearts,
A cardiac autonomy,
For the body has its courage,
But foliage alone stands against human expansion
And blossoms are the Earthly test of permanence.
