Poem: The flower

blooming opening with joyto the caressing light of the sun My petals extend

one by one delighting in the warmth, the fragrance, and beauty of being alive

Deep within a sweet nectar is gurgling rising slowly

Oh! I want only to offer and offer and offer again all my sweetness fragrance and beauty

Take me! Take me! I am yours! Please enjoy me, drink me it is my sole desire my deepest longing

I am full, so fresh brimming over
