This poem is dedicated to a strong young poet.







   Written by,

Cliff Chandler


Rise little flower

Rise from mother earth

Make the roses blush

Bring tears to the petals

Of orchids.


Shed your golden petals

Pinned to your stem

And let the mahogany beam

Beam in its beauty

Its curly black strands.


Rise little flower

Rejoice in your thunderous

Limbs, vibrating

Enchanting, hypnotizing



Glance over your shoulder

And flirt with us.

Memorize us with your

Natural state; beauty.

Rise little flower.
