The Song of the Amaryllis

 amaryllis buds

amaryllis bloom

amaryllis seed pods

“The Song of the Amaryllis”

Verses and the chorus

Chords and the refrain

Melodies strung together

Rhythm beats the time

Time before, remembered

Time waited for, anticipated

Two intangible times

Make this moment real

Seasons sing

Hear the song

The song of the amaryllis

Pretentious buds, playful teases

New beckons, entices

Blooms burst, colors blaze

Truth. Purpose. Proclaimed.

Sucked dry, stripped back, stark

Unsightly seeds, hidden allure, worrisome wait

Timing untold

Yet trusted

Sing soft and pure

Amaryllis
