The Flower

copyright by Leslie Ann Miller


A flower is out of focus in the waves
Spinning, dancing, restlessly
In flickering firelight,
In mountain shadows dark.
A flower is out of focus in the waves
Of silken black, spinning
Wildly to a silent tune
Haunting shadows in a
Forgotten glade. Spinning.
A flower is out of focus in the waves
Flying wildly in the wind
Glowing eyes witness
Circles spinning shadows
Haunting dance of
Black haired nymph
Spinning shadows in forgotten
Firelight.
A flower is out of focus in her waves.
