Exemplary Valentine

Flowers shame
and maybe blame us too
especially the pink ones
and the small bell-shaped
blue ones one finds hiding
to say nothing of the grand
complicated ones like the iris
or the outrageous hydrangea
because however beautiful
they remind us of our imprisonment
and longed-for release
for which they provide a picture
and fragrant example how
to live through time
as if there were no future
while nurturing inside
eternal seeds
