The Centre of Love

The Centre of Love

The heart of the flower, hidden deep in the receptacle is seed
The calyx is it’s green star, its protecting sepals raising
A bowl of surprise holding an astonishment of petals
Flurried and blushed like an priestess before her hand fasting
Casting spells of next summer down into the soil beneath.
