Pollen scatters like confetti across a shadowed floor. One bug wiggles its wings as it wallows within shoots of sustenance while a smaller bug clings to a heart of hope.
Nature’s princess sports a dress made with the colors of life and accessorizes with a tiara of sapphires.
Flinging their purple petals to the ground, they lift their round golden bodies to the sun.
In their ruffled party dresses, they pile atop on another. With the weight of the world on its shoulders, the stem threatens to snap sending the girls tumbling like dominoes.
Sparkling like a diamond in the sun, a single drop of water rests in the bloody palm of a Caladium leaf.
Like a bride walking down the aisle, milky layers of fabric fall from her waist and float behind her. Perfume trails her like a bridal train.
A volunteer. Perhaps a Sunflower?
This little gypsy girl, a lost soul, wanders about the garden. She twists and rises, dips and turns, freely roaming to reach the sky. We let her plant herself where she wishes as we think she just might be the promise of the sun.
