Poem: alstroemeria

By: Milt Montagu

FLOWER1

born in the Andes
from nature’s cornucopia
gifts to mankind

rainbows of beauty
modestly priced
at local supermarkets
everyman’s orchids

a touch of the exotic
to enhance your mantel
or dining table

variations of color
on every petal
casually sprinkled
with dots and dashes

Morse Code of the Cosmos
for Love
