HOW CALLA LILIES ENFOLD

HOW CALLA LILIES ENFOLD

Peace and pace of space
calla lilies slip up into curvaceousness
like the glossy satin of legs arranged
in Vogue Magazine

Peace calm and easy,
strong and firm like water in the
calla lilies’ succulent stems

What leads to an arrangement
like steps, planks ascend to sacred altar
of a contemplative nest,
calla lily abode

Regarding
like the quietude
of legs crossed on a bench
in an art museum, one’s own private art museum
perfumed breaths and petals damping,
private hush

So much can function
as a calla lily does

~ Lady
