Angels Left Behind Valentine

Under the ancient holy
But simple rule
Of St. Hibiscus
Flowers like temples
Sprang up across
Asia Minor though
Some missionaries
Went the other way
To what we call Hawai’i
Among the first Atlanteans
To leave who only took with them
Their mother’s flower seeds
And their father’s beauty
As tokens of having seen
The angels left behind
