pink
open
soft

sweet
hues
delight

"take"
she says
with her gentle, open glow

"take"
she says
to the bee
resting calmly as he enters

"take"
she says
to the people passing by
who pause to enjoy
an optic gentleness
and scent affirming
that life's purpose
is to live

and when the sun fades her pink
into warm shades of brown
and her nectar runs dry
and people pass her by
without pausing to delight

gently and humbly
she releases all of herself
petal by petal
into the earth
whispering,
"take"
