chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums

Petals nesting petals nesting petals, silky pockets.

As they age they become beautifully bedraggled.

Their inside colors become visible,

these revelations are of the backbone of glamour.

It is strength and tenacity, hardiness and non-opposition.

Fearlessness in exposure, full sunlight means a strong stem

Being very social plants,

they like to grow near one another in beds made for them.

though they may have been at one time, they are not really wild

as when walking through a forest and coming upon a meadow.

I think their fragrance smells real.
