gardenia hands, a poem important to me (dedicated to tia snow)

her hands flowed into the gardenia of

exploding plants, seemingly blending in


flowers and daisies,


bursting with color and vibrancy,

hands clutching at the menagerie

legs stretched across the grass

the clutching became rough somehow,

the grass crumpled under her hands



this gardenia was not an old friend

it never had been

this gardenia was not something she had loved

if she had loved it in the first place,

that love would fade away instantly

this gardenia was not something she could accept


the once-beautiful flowers

in a torn stash,

their beauty scattered

where the girl's resting place once was,

no longer green,

but black

she was no longer one with the earth.

where her gardenia hands once were,

smoke and ash cascaded

in fact;

she was a fire, endlessly raging against her enemies

the remnants of the gardenia

burnt away with the flames

and dissipated into the sky


picture this.

a once-beautiful area,

torn by the wind, water, and fire

hope there is no longer in time,

as it was years ago

yet every day,

the girl returned

her words written on her hands and legs,

in more ways than one, of course

there was no faith,

yet the girl couldn't finish the job



i wonder why?

Ok, you know who else is

Ok, you know who else is wondering why? ME

Why can't the gardenias stay?? Why did her (your?) hands become fire? How many ways are the words written in your arms and legs? 

Also, why did you choose to dedicate this to me?

Poetically this is a strong piece, by the way. The imagery is very amazing--fundamental. Flowers devolve into the four elements... 

I can't understand this poem, but am also not sure if I'm meant to. 


Good yard,

(Warmest regards)
