#napowrimo14 #npm14 Lilac


Four pale purple petals 
at first curled inward
in a deep fuchsia bud
slowly unfurling
into fragrant quarters,
tipped at each long edge with
a dart that pulls inward 
forming a shallow fairy bowl;
yellow stigma hides within
waiting for a butterfly
~ a fairy ~
to dip in;
 two weeks only in early summer
I pause, refreshed, renewed by
four pale purple petals.
