What’s a Flower an Emblem For

What’s a Flower an Emblem For

With one half-green thing
we suggest the rest

of the world’s unending
supply of flowers,

and all that it took for this
flower to grow.

Petals imply sky, light,
water collapsing

over the fields, protectively.
This flower is

the garden, and the garden
is the wilderness,

and the wilderness is the dark
fields beyond us

and in those dark fields, stars
that are and stars

that once were, and all the stars
that one day will hatch.

  1. Is it my imagination or have you been getting more cosmic, or at least global, in the last while? More forest, fewer trees? I like both forest and trees, so I'm just asking, not preferring.
