Two for Tuesday – Night and Day

The prompt is to write two poems, one about night and one about day. And so of course, I rebel in a tiny way by writing the poems in the order I see fit: Day and THEN night. ^_^  Sue me. ^_^

Day Lily

Petals open wide,
like arms spread
welcoming the world
to see all
contained
therein.

So far from shy,
your waxy petals
preen
under the light of day
and steal hearts
that might otherwise
love
a
rose.

###
Evening Primrose

Your gorgeous yellow petals
open only at night.
You disdain those
garish butterflies
and noisy bees
the other flowers
crave.

Yours is a more
quiet
flowery
soul
who wants only the
soft peace
and subtle stealth
of moths
on silent wings
stealing
pollen
from your
fragrant
heart.

  1. I love that evening poem 🙂 esp the ending, stealing the pollen from a fragrant heart. Beautiful wordplay…

    In the morning poem too, you say the lily takes attention away from a rose 🙂 with such beauty, it certainly would.
