The fallen frangipanni flowers

The fallen frangipanni flowers
white with yellow-gold centres
are like five-pointed stars
only softer, rounder. Their texture
looks somewhat like cream,
somewhat like very fine velvet.
Up the trumpet-shaped back
of the bloom, where it wants a stem,
are fine pink lines and green
fanning to the ends of the petals.

  1. Apparently the rain hasn't dampened its beauty. I'm glad you're safe from the flooding, Rosemary.

  2. Thanks; me too!

    I just wanted to look at something other than rain when I came to write this small stone. :)
