Mata Hari - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

On a heaven-bound thorn-packed stalk
Lies a flower in the many colors of chalk
Her enchantress with a doming inflorescence
Resonating to the euphoria of nature's cadence
A corolla which dazzles in her spherical glory
As the leprechaun Ra beckons from her golden storey
Gazing amorously at the azure veil above
Awaiting a midsummer baptism of an erotic love
Strutting her beauty with the advent of Aurora's dawn
Perched on the zenith of Gaia's corpuscular brawn
As dainty suitors queue up with a buzz of their gauzy trim
Tides of nectar surge to the nectaries brim
The promiscuous Mata Hari of nature's wiles
Swaying in the breeze with her tantalizing smiles
As bees circumambulate her honey-laden shrine
She merrily seeps a deluge of her midsummer's wine
As antennae radiate to the seepage of sugars galore
As the gluttonous proboscis extends to earnestly implore
Sweet golden nectar for the waltzing bees
As their fleeting escapade is consummated by a corolla's tease
Oh the beauty of love in the midst of nature
As two worlds collide, Mata Hari and her suitors
