       I haven't written poetry for almost two years and I actually forced myself to write this one. Why do we appreciate the beauty of nature? Is everything we consider to be beautiful merely a reflection of our own human sexuality. Whether it is or not, I confess that I still find flowers beautiful and to work in my garden very satisfying.

    We have a country garden
    that basks serene in summer sun.
    Lipstick pink camellias stroll the sidewalks
    in vinyl skirts of lip gloss leaves.
    Midnight blue delphiniums
    in strapless evening gowns
    hang on the arms of handsome moths.
    We see baby blue borage eyes
    wink coquettishly at passing bees.
    Petunias flirt outrageously,
    consort with sartorial butterflies.
    A splurge of lime green spurges
    are fleshpots for carrion flies,
    a brothel of tempting offal smell.
    Only the bumble bees can fumble,
    ease themselves into a silky embrace
    to be the beaux of foxglove bells.
    Damsels of love in a mist in froufrou frocks
    are awash with trembling oestrogen.
    And then the roses, blousy and voluptuous,
    drenched in boudoir perfumes,
    shedding petals of scarlet lingerie.
    The willows, oaks and conifers
    are however above it all.
    There's is an ethereal love
    that brushes pollen kisses onto feathery lips.
    But why then is the cedar sublimely elegant?
    What need has she of such true grace,
    whose lover is the fickle wind
    that uncaring blows from place to place?
