Scarlet Begonia

In a greying feaux-Tuscan pot,
the Reb Begonia;
blushing, heart-shaped petals
and buxom rouge-fringed leaves.

The pansies;
purple, dappled yellow,
a sickly shade
yet shining somehow like the sun.

They sit and quiver in the breeze,
apparently at home, at ease.

The lavender, sharp yet demure,
sitting upright;
sharing it’s peppery scent with me,
stems growing away toward the sun.

Drying dirt gathered
where tile meets pot.
A mark of nourishment,
a blight to the obsessive human eye.
