Hue’s Valentine

Most of the natives
are grouped in a sunny corner
while the imported plants
roam the yard more freely
in horticulture we replicate
our various moods and then there
are those flown in on the breeze
and having sold all their jewels
were forced to settle here
in the implacable desert
and in the middle of the hottest days
reveal the palest purple hue
in the form of a small flower
to the applause of all
