The tiger lily’s
The tiger lily’s vines orange and thin grabbing onto
the wall like a curios squirrel climbing up a tall tree,
The leaves are white and dazzling like stars
in the night sky. White and jet –black pollen as soft
as strawberry scented candy floss cloud
on a stick . Its deadly black sparkled roots dig further and
further in to the deeps of the soggy soil that crumbles like a piece
of chocolate sponge cake ,the tiger lily’s stem is black
white and orange its big petals witch are orange and
black growing Like a baby tiger into an adult.
the flower is as relaxing as a full moon over
an ocean covered sand as golden as treasure and
as beautiful as a memory.
