F l e u r F a t a l e...

Comes nite, fate befalls a Black Moon orchid,
Toasted umber bedaubs... curled leafed-tips,
Coursing arbored veins with a wrecklessness
As cancer permeates, the nodes and marrow.

Comes the rain, Mother Natures sweet elixir;
Remission.....could Death be not found here?
Miles away...... a Richelieu rosebush is dying
Strickened by curse of Black Spot 'n Dieback.

Comes dawn, natures demons smile 'n dance,
Death has found another permeate,
While Mother Nature sobs bitterly for herself;
And, Black Moon orchid knows there is a God.

Clean the spittoons, boy.

Clean the spittoons.
