A Flower Poem



A hibiscus dreaming near a pond

in Winter Haven, Florida

Nearby a jasmine blossom

steams my nostrils

a reminder of my bottled,

stoppered love

so long past

I need the reminder

that it once was,

extant beauty for a time

which is all

any fragrance is

Lusty as the red rose

the deep-throated hummingbird

Savors and flies off

Its bounty, she and I

cannot hold for long
