What the Tulips Said (poem) 

(inspired by Louise Gluck)

Down here
where darkness thickens
in this tight sleeve of earth,
and filaments of root
run netted like a brain,
we have forgotten
about light,
the candles of the sun,
lost emblems of that other world.

Here our only occupation
is patience,
our single hope
the whispered news
that one day soon
all this will change
and we will be transmuted,
distilled to pure color--
scarlet, sapphire, gold--
flashing banners in the breeze,
hands stretched upward
signaling to those who pass ,
see us,
what we have become,
this bright sensuousness,
unfurling edifice of joy.
