“Violet Spring”

You are
a hurtling violet comet in full bloom;
a stillborn flower, furiously alive.

You have
never swayed to stronger than a breath,
yet are beautiful
as love as strong as death.

You rise above
the sprawling, leafy canopy,
yet from the ground
are barely one foot high.

You are
a breathless veil,
a captivated spring inside circumference,
not bound by the pot that holds you
as you leap from earth to sky.

Written October 2011, Emma Dumitra.
