Rice Paper Blossoms – v3

How to describe
an image before me
in language of texture
of Georgia O’Keeffe
of flesh and blood

Dying crocuses, alive
bright, swaying,
glorious in their fading
becoming transparent
in the mid-day sun

Like rice paper blossoms
or blooms of thin phyllo dough,
see-through spring rolls;
dying ever so gracefully
at the foot of the cross
