my cyclamen is still alive

believe me it’s a miracle

the second flush of flowers bloom

all pink and poised and lyrical


its perfect little potted place

is perched above the microwave

beside a friendly maidenhair

fern of a feather misbehave


the sun through grimy window casts

filtered sunlight on their leaves

their artificial man made home

has beauty only a plant perceives
