Inside a red tulip


Inside a red tulip
a red dwarf burns
an old sun’s final glory
shining God’s praises
then at its heart
a dark brilliance begins
racing toward the edges
towards the finish line
of stardom
a supernova of petals
or collapsing
into a black hole
that emerges into next year’s garden.

Welcome to something new


Welcome to Flores y Cantos (Flowers and Songs), a new blog that will feature my writing and original art. You may remember me from Bellas Artes, a blog I added to for a long time, where I talked about my arts and crafts projects and home life. Now I want to be more serious about my writing--I hope to include essays, memoirs, stories, book reviews--whatever I can wrap words around. I've been studying poetry and poetry writing for a year now, and so you will also see poems here. Check back each week for something new. Thanks for visiting!
