Peace Lily, March 2020

Impossibly
graceful
in white,
she gets my
attention
and I
cannot
merely
walk past.
She makes me
stop and look,
I make
a photograph.

Serious,
her beauty,
it occupies
my thought.
But just
because
I see her,
that doesn’t
make her mine.

Great gentleness
might be
required,
should I
ever try
to touch.
Already
she has
suffered,
suffered
all too much.

Translucent,
with the light
behind,
white on white,
I know
I’m blind.
There’s subtle
beauty I can’t
even see.
My eyes
are not
enough
for me.

I know
there’s more,
much more
to know,
but my
poor eyes
see her
just so.
