Wildflower Flowering 'In The Pink' Naturalizing Asclepias

Forms tightly woven
sweet filled cups spill into air
generous buds full

letting go unfurl
calyx corolla armor 
release opening

protective layers
disrobe revealing pendants
alluring fragrance

floating mist essence
embracing senses engage
claws and spurs spread out

explosive fireworks
pendulous orbs nurture life
pink porcelain stars fall

wild and native green
countless creatures jade delight
weed of milky sap

inhales expanding open
eyes to inner sphere 

essential cycle
return each season newly
egg to butterfly

idea to artful
nature feeds cultivates joy
a chrysalis forms

Visit Gail down yonder at Clay and Limestone for other wildflower studies.

select plants of choice

Promise of new life
mother fastening last egg
flies away to die

A Painted Lady

Echinacea sweet

Sun moon rise and set
daylilies open and close
life is a moment
