91 Longer Poems To Flowers

© Saiom Shriver

GOLDSMITHED ROSE

All life is sacred
but one day he chose
that the Japanese beetle
was greater than rose.
Crawling in his greenmail* armour
over the Goldsmithed bloom
ready to turn gold petal fire
into pure insect flight.
He found when he chose
the bug oer the
rose
God gave him back
endless blooms of rose.

APPLE CHAPEL PINE SHRINE

Is God's favorite chapel
orchards appled?
Her Ichi Ban shrine..
trees of pine?
Her beloved mosque
vine covered kiosks?
Her best synagogue
a cranberry bog?
Her holiest church
woods of birch

(to N and E Kempel)

BLUEMS

When chicory
and periwinkle

.. catching blue
star twinkle

bloom
... they're bluems

NO ADIEU

The bees need not
bid the blooms adieu
for the morn brings
new nectar and dew

IN THE PRIDED WOOD

In the prided wood
the Lord of Luminescence
gives each fruit
a dewy tumescence
and with light each
lemon limns
and with love
each lime he lines.

IN THE COUNTY OF FAIRFAX

In the county of Fairfax
in the meadows flagged with phlox
stop the fair unfair who fright the fox
before they eat the flanks of flocks

TWO ROSES DWELT ABOVE

Two roses dwelt
above
.. the meanest sharpest
thorns
So high they
swayed
in morning light
their petaled fleece
was never shorn

DANDELION DIASPORA

The rain, weed-wed,
has
multiplied
these
gray haired flakeheads
and now

dandelion seeds float in the air..
by the Bubble Blower sent aloft..
which ones will mystically touchdown..
to root in our hearts?

NOT IN CHAOTIC SHARDS

Not in chaotic shards
do dandelion seeds
burst from their ball.
Each part as perfect
as the whole.
Each each contains
the all.

BEETLE BITTEN BEE BIBBED BLOOMS

The beetle bitten blooms
are now beautiful of lace
The bees have bibbed
all the nectar
and the emptied bloom chalice
will now hold new dew.

BUTTERNUT AND BUTTERCUP

Held the dew
the concave buttercup
better than
the convex butternut

as listening ears
have healing
in their cups

with what
chalice'd joy
does the buttercup
hold
the liquid sunup

(to J Miller, to L Yost and to others)

DO FLOWERS CHASE BEES?

Do flowers chase bees?
Does Mother Earth bite?
Do rivers run backwards?
Do
butterflies get speeding tickets? It is to the meditater at the
tree's base and not to the hunter that the gentle deer come.
***

(to bee attracting C Nevada
who juggles 3 careers)

PHLOX UNFURL THEIR FLAGS

The phlox unfold
their bee flagons
that busy bees
not be flaggin
The phlox unfurl
their flags of joy..
made of the caught
flames of the sun..
with hues
unique to no nation..

As the world warms
in the flux of love
there will be less need
for foxes' gloves
or phlox gloves

PICKPOCKET KUDZU

Kudzu pickpocket
crawling along
the pickets
and up the trunks
looking for caches
and caves of squirrel
seeds..

as Love climbs over
the heart.. looking
for chinks which will
let Him in

THISTLE BLOWS

Tangent to the mistle toe
Near where the harbor whistle crows
she the dearest epistle knows
is watching down of thistle blow

Her favorite sermon
.. Jack In the Pulpit
surrounded by his
bee disciples

EXPLODE

Bees watched buds unfold
and to blooms of gold
in joy explode

OAK AND POPLAR

The centenarian oak
cares not
that less slender
is poplar body cloak
He cares not that
in gardens papal
more popular
are the poplars

HAT OF BLUEBONNET

Mother Earth's hat
of meadowed bluebonnet
Out of the blue
how quickly she dons it
To the sky spirea aspires
while snapdragons to the sun
sing a silent
sonnet
Such a beautiful world:
God smiles upon it

NO PRUNING

His plum tree
he did not violently
prune
and therefore
he had
many times more prunes

DELILAH'S DAHLIAS

No longer need
Samson fear
Delilah's shears.
Reborn is
Delilah
..
.. safe are the curly heads
of dahlias

MASTER OF ASTERS

Has made manifest, God, Weaving Master
the unfolded fan spheres of each purple aster
while Mother Earth has knitted strong knots
in the faithful blue forget me nots.
and the sun has tied seamless buckles
from the roots to the blooms of the honeysuckle.

Of all beings, God is the
seamster, the weaver,
the knitter, the tier,
He welds, He unites, He joins
every leaf and soul with His sunfire.

DAFFODIL CHALICE

Father winter
.. he did fill
the hopeful cup of
wee daffodil
with the cold
sorbet
of chill
the icing of
snowspill.

But it melted
quickly..
and soon to
the touch of
the sun
the daffodil
did thrill.

OLIVES OF WRATH

There are olives of wrath
as well as grapes of wrath
... bulldozed
from their mother trees
May God
Who is Nonharming
Who is Peace
change all ways
so that always
peace will be theirs and thine
peace will be for all .. for mine

MAXWELL PERIWINKLE BLUE

Stars
above & their twinkles
are mirrored by
ground periwinkle
.. they do not sparkle
as much as J's smile
breaking through
her cheek crinkles

to JMB

DANDELION BLOOD

Dandelions' blood
is green..
Dandy lions' blood
is red
Because they hurt
They have bled

HOLLY HOCKS

Thought Holly in her hammock
"Never will Holly hock
the seeds of her
precious holly hocks

Their standards of cheer
are receivers of joy

GOLDENROD DUST

Dorothy has grown
since her trip to Oz..
she now prefers
a goldenrod powdered
wild trail..
to the yellow brick road

WATER LILIES

water lilies
offer landing pads to
dragonfly helicopters

SNAPDRAGONS

Snapping turtles
avoid eating
snapdragons
fearing
a return snap

32
THE SPUN SUN

The sun
that night did shun
seen everywhere
in trees and flowers spun

JADE LINEN

Ever the tree of linden
is spinning his green linen

GRAPE GLEANINGS

Purple Grape gleanings
spun from sun gleamings
.. like the violet sunrise
shining in the gloaming

ORCHID BEDFELLOWS

They all alight
upon
the orgy of orchids..
the dragonfly
for a place to rest
the bee for nectar..
(though he loves his queen more)..
and the cicada
to munch upon the
leaves

(my muse for this poem
is Joan Beth Clair who wrote
'the black and yellow bee
the black and yellow butterfly
.. on the flower together"
.. paraphrased poorly
from memory)

NO HIDDEN ARROWS

There are no hidden arrows
in the bright golden yarrow
who ever knits her gifts
from the earth's very marrow

FOXGLOVE

The foxglove meant no offense
when you brushed by her fragrant fence
and she slapped you with her white glove

DUNEGRASS PAINTBRUSHES

Paintbrushes.. ten thousand
dunegrass blades: soft spears
work to paint the
blue sky sphere

yet no matter how
many strokes of green
the sky remains
invulnerably blue

CARNATION CORONATION

God's creation:
The incarnation
of pink carnations...
.crowning circle of bees
completes coronation

ANEMONE

Beauty gives her
hegemony...
the pink bush of anemone
.. a flock of settled
butterflies..
...with nary an enemy

WILD VIOLETS

The gardening headline
said the wild violets
were a persistent weed

they scotch these
purple fragilities
with such
a heedless facility

REGALIA

A bursting regalia
of blooming azalea
God has enkindled
just to regale you

LADY BIRD'S COWSLIPS

Painters love flowers for their hues.
Perfumers love blossoms for their smells.
Bees other bees of bloom nectar tell.
Lady Bird loves cowslips for themselves.

Wherever she has trod in the dell
flowertrails to Mother Earth befell
.. daffodils and larkspur and bluebells
daisies and trilliums and cockleshells

FORSYTHIA

For His Cynthia
God made Forsythia
.. she's first to bloom
in the spring
last to drop
her leaves
in the fall
.. the gold
drawn from straight
from her
sunny soul

PATIENT IMPATIENCE

Impatience
are often patient
.. waiting for
a brighter day.
Impatience
blooms
woven on the
sun's vast looms
not deterred
by cloudy gloom
uplifted by the
wind's soft brooms

PHYLLIS

Gladiolas are glorious
especially... Gloria's
but
I grow these lilies
to delight My Phyllis
(said God)

DOGWOOD

The sun wooed
the spring woods
Everywhere pink
and white dogwood

Teacher of love,
the dog, wooed
the human..
for give himself
entire,
the dog would.

FORSYTHE

God's omniscience
God's universal foresight
wills every bell of forsythia
.. every cell of Forsythe.

PARACHUTES

The wind
releases
dandelion parachutes
They alight
and spark
a golden
pair of shoots

FLOWERS OF FRANCE

Ants help peonies
release their incense
Lilacs the wet westwind
do
scent
1000 blooms
1000 perfumes
each heaven sent
.. and the flowers of France
have fragrant frankincense

WALLFLOWERS

No more broken hearted
wallflowers passed by
No more plants called
weeds.. torn out by their roots

HYDRANGEAS

Sometimes confessor priests
or flowers speak..
Hydrangeas change their hue
From the acid in the soil
They change from pink to blue.

(to Dave Baldacci who spoke
of a row of pink hydrangeas,
1 plant of which had turned
to blue... investigators dug
and find a gun there)
(Most who kill are 1 time killers..
but when serial murder occurs,
the ethics become more weighted)

BLOOMING HEART

The meadows and woods in her
heart are

samara starred ,
aster spangled ,
daisy sprinkled
violet spattered,
buttercup strewn,
trillium studded,
bluebell splashed
dandelion splattered,

poppy peppered
cowslip stippled
phlox flagged
tiger lily freckled
chicory flecked
mayapple dappled
dandelion dotted
spirea speckled

SPIREA

Spirea petals
fall while a spiral of
dandelion spores
to the sky aspires

CARNATION CORONATION

God's creation:
The incarnation
of pink carnations...
.crowning circle of bees
completes coronation

ROSE OF AKRON

Through the pickets
peep the pink petunias
the purple pansies
and peonies
.. their roots are fixed
by their loved ones
but their fragrance
and light
soar to the stars

CLEAVE NOT THE CLOVER VEIL

A clover veil..
violets the vale
neith skies cloudclad
or when ultraviolet
sun prevails.

(to Elissa S taken to safety by one of the Kent State Four .. just before he died)

LILY PAD PLATES

lily pad plates... spheres with rims.. raindrops fill
them to the brim
*
DAYGOLD NIGHTPURPLE

Wildflower clusters of little daisies, purple.. with gold
centers.. during the day the yellow of the sun.. at night
purple petals infold to cover their lemon hue..

JASMINE SCENT

The South Wind
has for the evening
donned
jasmine scent.

GOLDENROD JEWEL

The bee hung upside down
to clasp
the goldenrod jewel
beneath the hasp
.. and therefore found
chalice not empty
but half full

He swung on the goldenrod's heavy arc
... his striped curl
matching her golden curl

POSIE DEFENSE

One said that
the posies
were sham posers
.. ignored him
the posies
and kept on posie-ing.
This is a defense
of posies along the fence.

FERNS' SHY LOCKS

Ferns' shy locks
framed by shamrocks
.. may he tread there
softly..
oh aristocrat pawn Sherlock

IRIS UNPERPLEXED

It does not
violet iris perplex
that the sun continues
iris petals to purplex.

NECTAR IN THE CHALICED BLOOMS

There are lilac honey,
rose honey
and honey from daffodils
There is honey from
lilies of the valley
and from apple blossoms
on the hill.
But whether it is honey
from honeysuckle
or from peach and pear trees
any honey eaten by humans
is a theft from the bees.

SUNFLOWERS SWIRLING

The sunflowers are sundials
swiveling, swirling
while in the dell, daffodils
His light do spin and spill

FALLEN STAR ABOUT TO RISE

today i saw a single lemon yellow tiger lily..
a fallen star lying in the green...
but nearby ... are constellations of orange ones.. waiting to burst
into the sun and shine her into cheer

STILEBE

staring at stands of wild stilebe
made one think of C & B Kilby
bloom feathers..
like bridges between thought and deed
.. whatever they wish for
surely
.. some day will be

LOOSESTRIFE

Loosestrife was slain
because
with her so fast pink loom
she spins pink blooms
as she stitches
land out of water
and pure fire.
But to save the bees,
more are saving her
the water purifier.

*

ASTERS

The meadows' Master, the pastures' pastor
has banned mowers to asterisk the fields with asters.

KARCH

The gold of the rainbow's rarified arch
The gold of the daffodils of March.
The gold of October's
leaves of larch.
are nothing to the gold
in the heart of Richard Karch.

NOT BLUEBELL BLOSSOMS

White blossoms give way to sweet blackberries.
Pink blooms blow away and lo are scarlet cherries.
Bright orange flowers replaced by purple prickly pearies.
Not blue bell blossoms but white bell clusters become
blueberries.

ANGELS

Because of them fewer cows will trip
on feedlot muck or slippery cowslip

(to Farm Sanctuary)

FLUORESCENCE

*29
The glistening spider filament fluttered in the wind, spangled
with dandelion spores...a magic wand with not one
but many stars

God needs no chain or buckle
to link the roots of honeysuckle.
Her herald fragrance runs ahead
as her seamless threads

Like the anemone she has nary an enemy

above its jade velvet carpet, the moss sends shoots
of tiny lime stars.. shooting stars
*33
From the plane, one sees cloudscript...
.. ancient stotras of Sanskrit...
*34
as he walked along, he saw a
slain dandelion with grey locks
and blew the down of the mower victim
that there be new fluffy flower flocks

The tree branches God has joined together let no one cleave asunder.

Those depressing stormclouds grey... wand the world to green
*42
The orange tree... a green galaxy with many blazing
saffron sunorbs
*43
The morning sun does the throat of lark spur and blue the meadows
with sweetest larkspur
*44
While elsewhere the sun, universal lover,
has knit a new cover, of purplest clover, all the field over
*45
Most can from the apple tree pick spies
but only God can pluck blazing stars from the skies
*46
Like the beloved in a canoe paddled by her love is
the willow tree trailing her lacy fingers in the lake
*47
When the naturalist who defines plants as wild edibles
comes around, do the plants shiver and shake, quiver and quake?
*48
Some find peace most in the mountains. Some find peace
most at the sea. Some find peace most
in the mountains oer the sea. I find peace... only with Thee
*49
Only newfallen laurel leaves in Wilbur's laureate wreaths
for he takes only what Mother Earth gently bequeaths
*50
Within each acorn cloak are infinite oaks.
*51
Inch across the yard the bright rays of dawn
Striking magic wands cause flowers in the lawns.
*52
In the foothills of the Apennines old olive trees with grapes vined ...make violet orbs of olivine... we think
of this in LA at Olive and Vine
*53
Unseen, starlight flickers as day's luxflux melts snowflakes and spins pink blooms of phlox, blue-purple flax, flowers
goldflecked.
*54
From the shore.. one looks upward
to the sanddune grass..10,000 green brush blades
trying to paint the blue sky jade*
*55
He put down his scythe and put down sickle
for he would no more cut the wildrose or honeysuckle
He would let God decide when plants to recycle
amd instead into a trellis he reforged his sickle
