Poetry “Greenhouse”

Oh greenhouse so lovely,
Summer in winter

Leaves raise and stand proud
Not swirling outside

Respites reward for those who seek
Places of peace

Perches of gaity, unroll like candy
Nooks of detail

Spots, spikes, holes and shadows
Textures bend and spill

Sprinkles of water lie on leaf
Mirroring architecture

Laced with light, laughing
Brimming, fluttering faster

Red poinsettias smile
Dotted with beads of yellow

The weeping willow weeps no more
It bows to the assembly

The beige cacti bloom
Pink, purple and primrose

Grasses wave in winter
Sedges stand tall and still

Eyes leap and heart rests
In your promises
