Edible Flowers


i eat edible flowers growing from the soil

wounded leaves and petals bleed

pulled in rootbound coils

i taste the blade... i lick the pollen from the spore

seeds that know the stinger and the sun

enchant this herbivore


like the way that my love looks in you

like the way that your love sees through

with your vapour eyes


i tend a splendorous blue garden rising from the sea

fairies landing on the hour

pool their power collectively


i hold a newborn baby... wise as water trees

eyes that know the heart behind the mind

the thoughts i feed


like the way that my love looks in you

like the way that your love sees through

with your vapour eyes
