In Time of Peonies

Sorry
about the blooms
redolent burgeoning
expected and indulgently
open
like thighs
to your springtime exultation
gone the way of fortune
but you’ll conserve
the ants

Day 3 of NaPoWriMo! Magaly’s prompt in the Imaginary Garden today is SPEAKING FOR SPRING’S STILLBORN SPROUTS

  1. Oooh! Double cinquain! You always make it look so stylish. I love the image of open thighs.

  2. I forgot all about this form (and how much I like it). I can't wait to steal it (again).

    If I were a plant, I think I would certainly speak like this one does. It would be difficult not to be bitter after being treated like something of no consequence.

  3. I second the ooh. This is really striking. Where it goes from the opening to the ending is just amazing, like going from an inviting grin to a slap.

  4. You always manage to create a complete, intricately idea-box with the most basic tools and materials, Marian. Truly a gift, and lushly in evidence here.

  11. Nothing wasted in Ma Earth's economy -- yet nothing not fully grieved, either. The compensation of ants requires a different mind to understand the tally.

  12. Striking! And I realise I have under-estimated the cinquain form. It's beautiful in your hands.
