Lexi’s Flowers

For Alexis Sheeley

Green space pods hover

over green-and-black bullseye

arrowed with feathered purple tendrils;

fuchsia petals wave like flags;

and pale pink twin poms

float on rippled water pooled

in a crystal bowl

pedestaled on steel-supported glass:

flowers fruited by

attentive cultivation

of a gardener

coaxing their colours from them.
