A kiss from a Flower

by Christopher Shin

Counting the blue ones
that blossom in the
cusp of November and

I think of the sky
and the winter

Are the colors
of tears clutter
my world in the it's
tragic times?

Or are the blue
a kiss of heaven,
but a sense of

I gather the bouquet
as the bounty
clumps into a sum.

And the crimson
tulips plucker their
petals in ruby lips.

With blushing cheeks
I lean forward
in expectation.

Only to find the critic
sting as words stab
with sharp teeth.
