Flower Heads poem by Luci Shaw

Flower Head

Here God lives, burrowing among
the petals, cross-
pollinating. Here is Christ’s mind
juiced, joined, fleshed, celled.

Here is the clash
the roil, an invasion, not gentle
as dew; the rose is unfurled
violently until the scent explodes
and detonates in the air.

And oh, it trembles-
thousands of seeds ripen in it as
it reels in the wind.
