Delphinium
by
Nydia Rojas

The delphinium growing in the garden
stands tall, its flowers mirroring
the limpid summer sky.

Around it, serenity has built
a sanctuary where bees
and butterflies seek refuge.

The flower stalk stands tall
above the leaves as if wanting
to see the world around it
or get closer to the sky
and blend colors

or simply to offer its beauty,
mysterious impulses guiding
it to put its flowers on display
for whoever happens to walk by.

Fun poem. It sent me to seeking out pictures, and they're beautiful but can't include in text here. Just search 'delphinium' and look at 'images.' BTW is the plural delphinia? This, too, sent me seeking: pluralizations of Latin in English. Complex. Nydia cleverly stuck to the singular.
