New Flowers, New Universes - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

a million years for a flower to unveil
its magic to us - fragrance, shades
and the art of divine creation

filamen, pistils, stagmen, pollen..
petal by petal, inch by inch,
second by second,
sun and moon, moon and sun

a million other universes
accompany the bloom
as it slowly, surely
digests the world
to show us its beauty

as the bloom crowns
us all at the apex of its wonder
- a million other universes
too have been born and
shuttle towards achieving
a full bloom in the heavens
