Atop the showy bracts,

flowers of the universe

sit glistening in their crown

like diamonds of the soul.


Twisted scarlet foliage tapering

into a celestial body of stellar light,

twinkles brilliantly beneath

the countless jewels.


A venomous milky substance travels

through the branching framework of the galaxy,

nourishing the heavenly body of a miracle.


Carefully cloaked in a cosmos of colour,

the flower of the “Holy Spirit

will shine but once a year.
