Whispering Blooms
By David De Jong

Mere pigments, paper, water and brush
With hints of heated capsicum blush
Sweet strokes of genius, perfected flair
Grows a bouquet, endearingly rare

Soft painted flowers adorn a frame
Sifting sunlight while fanning the flame
Feathering edges enclose the bloom
Holding silent their starlit perfume

Tarry too long they will draw you in
Fast losing your way beyond the stem
Up turned parasols scanning the sky
Purest of beauty tempting the eye

Delicate dancers, flirting with ease
Whispering their secrets to the breeze
Telling all of whom they bloom the best
For a love that loves eluding rest
