Flowers - Poem by Tyler Wilcox

Labyrinthine fields of jasmine
Line pavements
Under my aching window.

You told me you wouldn't know whether
To hold or fold, I took the bait
And jumped from my hiding place.

I picked a bouquet
Of redolent lilies,
Resilient lotuses,

Held firm the stems
Elegantly grasping
With both hands.

It was vital
I understood the scent
Of your flower kingdom.

I fell for the blossoms I heard
Waving their arms in the fields
To your garden song.

I would follow you
To the ends of the earth;
Anywhere but where you are.

Sunflower shines ultraviolet rays
Like private impersonal messages
That I receive like a telegraph - stop

Psychedelic astronaut
Takes off in lunar lander
Leaves earth below - and fragile

You showed me these things;
Like a flower folded in a book
I held them tight for your sake.
