I Am a Flower

Floating Frangipani-

One day when I get stuck in the blue

I will lift up clear through it

Like a hot air balloon without noise or heat

I will float through yielding clouds

I am a flower borne by an updraft

into air pure and cleansing

The wind cradles me as I ascend

gently lifted far beyond gravity’s pull

I am fragrant and beautiful

Here the dream interwoven in my history

takes shape as ethereal meets substance

Now I know as I am known
