Her beauty blooms over me
a sighing red lipstick kiss
I am caught
gazing upon your blushing smile
the heat rises as I ponder
“Can such beauty be held in a mortal’s fingertips?
will my touch cause her to brown and wither?”
I dare not risk the sacrifice
I entreat “Never turn your face”
I remain content
Imagining the silk like fluttering
graze against a waiting lover’s lips
Inspired by the beauty of this lovely hibiscus I had to write a poem in her honor.
