Bloom Lilac

Poetry for living: celebrate joyful living in a whisper soft lilac mohair scarf.
Lilacs,

False blue,

White,

Purple,

Color of lilac,

You have forgotten your Eastern origin,   

The veiled women with eyes like panthers,

The swollen, aggressive turbans of jeweled pashas.

Now you are a very decent flower,   

A reticent flower,

A curiously clear-cut, candid flower,   

Standing beside clean doorways,

Friendly to a house-cat and a pair of spectacles,   

Making poetry out of a bit of moonlight   

And a hundred or two sharp blossoms. 
                                -Amy Powell, excerpt from Lilacs
