Ephemeral: Two Weeks of a Watermelon Tulip

April Fools Day, 7:30 AM, she is a comely bud.

Within three hours, she is open for bees-ness.

For a week she opens and closes, keeping the sun’s hours, and then…

She ages with continuing grace.

Morning kisses her with mist.

She is showered with kisses.

She begins to undress.

A petal at a time.

Graciously.

Revealed.

Showing the way.
