flowers of romance

flowers #2 by ib, SibLINGSHOT ON THE BLEACHERS.
I originally photographed these flowers in front of a rain swept window about ten years ago, when my son's mother was pregnant with him. The image is one of a series of four.

Now in the summer
/ I could be happy or in distress /
Depending on the company
/ On the veranda /
Talk of the future or reminisce / Behind the dialogue /
We're in a mess /
Whatever I intended
/ I sent you flowers /
You wanted chocolates instead
/ The flowers of romance /
The flowers of romance
I've got binoculars
/ On top of boxhill / I could be Nero /
Fly the eagle
/ Start all over again /
I can't depend on these so-called friends
It's a pity you need to bend
I'll take the furniture
/ Start all over again
