Yellow petals, velvet skin reflects light
of morning shining bright through window, drawn
curtains opened to the sky so blue (might
yet be a clear day). The vase stands tall, dawn
lending subtlety to the colours, born
from fine English soil – country garden land.
Variety is key to this, a pawn
in display of gratitude given, hand
outstretched to maternal figure on lawns
manicured for the occasion. Beauty
of the bouquet of palette warm come from
sunshine hues, spanning lemon to dark one
of Italian orange. This duty
done: exotic somehow, flowers native.
