|Flowers, by Odilon Redon|
Flowers in a Vase
Earth colored urn
placed on a dark honeyed table,
filled with flowers from the field.
Each flower dances in its vibrant color,
some so light, they embody life,
twitching to fool the viewer
"I am a butterfly dancing," they lie.
The sun, the river,
the sky, the ground,
all play together in this vase.
A mess of life-- stabled,
captured for a time.
