the delicacy of death

From an old Dahlia series, attempting  to show the robust beauty of new life as it grows older,  finally reaching the unsung beauty of death.


A Microcosm of the Macrocosm

P1120126

 

To see a cathedral in a flower,

 to be drunk with its nectar,

under an opalescent sky.

Infinity is our Home.  We are just sojourning awhile in the caravanserai of the body.”

Pure Allure

016 copy

Look into my eyes

that tell no lies,

do they not hypnotize?

And my swirling

coat of curls,

is that not your unfurling?

Simple and pure,

though quite demure

I am full of allure.

And although

pink of ear,

pink of nose and

pink of horn,

 I’m yellow-tagged

and thus

uncharacteristically,

undeniably,

 positively

forlorn.


Cruel Beauty

P1100037

The nature of paranoia

feels persecuted by nature

 sees flowers gossiping

their pistols pissing/hissing

stamens wagging

with stories about

the outsider

who turns away in tears

malicious, vicious words

pollinating the silence

while venomous stamens

 draw ovules of blood

as the razor sharp leaves

slit  slender petals
