sunflower in the dark (Photo credit: ekkiPics)
Love the contrast of the deep black and the almost fluorescent glow of the bright yellow sunflower. I can practically feel the lush softness of the silky petals, so delicate.
Notice, if you look very carefully, the petals, each and every one, has darker shades or orange in it as well as bright yellow. The night and the light, together.
I reach out my fingertips to touch the flower and shrink away, better to leave the fantasy.

In secret black webs
evil thoughts bake with bright blood
hidden plans, cookies?
Black gooey shrines
mask the real terror of life,
Every day moments.
A white gown of lace
now fitted to perfection
her stark red lipstick.
Misty, cloudy fog
squeezed me away from my Love
Twists my throat, deeply.
