Collage’s Floral Dance

Twould ease – a Butterfly –
Elate – a Bee –
Thou’rt neither –
Neither – thy capacity –

But, Blossom, were I,
I would rather be
Thy moment
Than a Bee’s Eternity –

Content of fading
Is enough for me –
Fade I unto Divinity –

And Dying – Lifetime –
Ample as the Eye –
Her least attention raise on me –

—Emily Dickinson

As spring unlocks the earth, the dance of flowers begins: colorfully riotous, aromatically loud, ceaselessly changing, moving, blossoming, scattering, withering, and dying—and rising anew.
