calla lily

calla lily


she appears upon the stem

as if formed about the appendage

of god’s self

as i glance fervently about

for it seems

he has most recently withdrawn

and she has been opened

and abandoned

sculpted by his love into this silhouette

of grace


her heart-shaped gape

becoming vessel,

white and fragrant, deep and

yearning to be filled

she draws me in

as if this is her purpose

this op’ning of herself in time

to being filled again.


exquisiteness enhanced

by thirst,

her contours capture water

let it trickle and then flow

from this, the whorl of her unfurled



into which she further draws my gaze

into this virgin

beauty of her depths

where at last i see

the seeds of her own self

upon her erect stamen
