House of Flowers

Greeted by snow white lilacs

And a sea of blooming roses

Crescendo of blushing pink 

To delight both eyes and noses 

An avalanche of daisies 

Spread out with ease 

Like a cloth to host 

Summer feasts of bees 

Fiddleheads sign the ground 

Calligraphy of cursive green 

Forget-me-nots spring all 'round 

Quiet cerulean serendipity 

And waiting inside this peaceful Arden 

A second garden within a garden 

Where Monet's poppies all bloom sprawled 

In bloody drops along the wall 

A bouquet of lilies of unknown fame 

Strikes a pose within its frame 

And whole flower beds leap 

Off porcelain plates 

For both eyes and mouth 

To sweetly partake 

A house of flowers, a house of cards 

Shuffled petals against the stars 

Spread out like a goldenrod tent 

As the turtledove sings its summer lament 

To crown with music this peaceful Arden 

This echoing garden within a garden.
