The Space Flowers

The Space Flowers


by Lucy Hinton

Pictures of growth . flash

flowers with petals of light

In my limitless garden

I melt into the night.

The air is heavy

And the world is full

As the flowers grow

Catching the energy of time

tender details burn and know

where we are but not why

find those answers in the sky

That is why plants face the stars

And the invisible dust

To share the unconscious knowledge

With Jupiter and Mars.
