Flower Held Aloft Valentine

When the nixies who live
in the yellow hibiscus flower
see their work is done
eagerly they hand things
over to the south wind
to take the scent aloft
and drive the worker bees
crazy with delight
all this must happen
in a single day but so far
not a single bee has come
the wind has betrayed him
and fallen to the ground
but he persists in blooming alone
he persists in holding out his arms
