Lilies Poem by Joan Pond


Mock Sun

Trumpet lilies

blare,

bright yellow;

as stamen and pistil

bellow,

from the throats

of xanthic flowers.

Unmuted,

they defy gravity,

along with the light of day.

Their slender stems

with whorls of painted leaves,

point heaven-ward;

in an orchestration

of

mock sun.
