A Picture, or 1000 Words?- Aurora Phoenix

bee on flower

when you paint me

will I flow from your brush

cerulean and magenta profusions

my intimate sins

bleeding O’Keeffe’s rainbows

stunning explosions

across your pages?

or will you sketch me

in botanic taxonomy

skunk cabbage petals

heavy with heat crimp

pinned and labeled

for methodical scrutiny?

 

you buzz about my petals

alight instinctive

vibrations

 

I anticipate your sting
