Star flower


The starflower glows as

bright and beautiful as the

full moon. The vivid green stem 

grows faster than a shooting star 

in the night sky. The bees buzzing 

around the starflower collecting 

the strong,  golden pollen. The petals

are hanging on by a thin, weakened string. 

The long, lengthy roots scurrying

through the dirt like a filthy, unpleasant

  1. A great poem, Lacie. What made you think of ‘thin, weakened string?’ How does string become weakened? I’m really interested in your thoughts.
