flowers pressed to your throat, sweeping petals of cascading lilies, poisonous heartdrops of wisteria, droplets of violets and wild roadside flowers peaking behind throw-it-out-the-window garbage. and roses. oh, let there be roses.
cultivated stars, orange blossoms and lemon fruits. kudzu threads through your veins
rippling outward, roots fractaling inside veins to capillaries, bursting through scratched open wounds. dollar weeds inside your hair, sprigs of plantain, blood sweet amaryllis is thick inside your heart. open your mouth. milkweed interspersed at your joints, twisting with clover tiny leaves of three, their pale halos to be the only sign from god. butterflies gather over the dead.
marigolds beneath the languid green of the africian iris, purples and bright yellows with a delicate shade of white that wilts beneath the rain. they grow above you, below you, beside you, inside of you. large red hibiscus petals fluttering in the wind, a mimic of a frantic heartbeat. elephant ears tremble, shaking their heads. crepe myrtles are caught up, pouring white, purple, and red, red, red.
across your head, a crown of gardenias. summer full and heady with an expectancy of stars, tangled with galactic swirls of jasmine, twisting twisting twisting — and roses. oh, let there be roses.

Our daughter, Zena, was born November 15, 1988. Astrologically she is a Scorpio, very passionate and curious about scary things. In this painting she pulls from her center a rainbow sphere, a heartdrop of spiritual potentiality with the Tibetan syllable Ah. The Ah is used in the Dzogchen teachings as a symbol of primordial purity. Joyful children radiate this purity and spontaneity, free from conceptual thought, but it is not integrated or stabilized as true realization; that only comes after the conceptual mind has developed and been transcended by spiritual practice.
