The Floral Artist

Mixing it up
for the birthday basket,
flowers, and what have you.

Creating desire
in the single,
long-stemmed rose.

Matching the occasion
weddings, parties any
blooming thing.

Mending fractures
with mixed bouquet and feelings,
after the falling out.

Meeting expectations
with boutonnière formality
and corsage constraints.

Wakening us to the clock
with crafted funeral flowers –
a limit to style and colour.
