Peonies

Becoming a Peony


Small green globes that shroud
the delicate within
angelic white kissed with sunset pink.

Without, they scramble silently
pulling, pulling
for release of the tender heart.

Green yields, and yields
slowly it seems
from its beginning orb.

The white flesh appears, peeled out
revealing its final flourish
the beauty of spring.
