Ashen

Grey Peony.
Find Peonies momentarily
in their early morning’s full bloom,
revealing what lies within,
the layers fall delicately
as they burst open in true beauty.
Grey is all,
facets of a fading sun’s light,
shades of fractioned or dazzling blanks,
even painfully bright darknesses.
And a poet’s lips would never whisper
why their minds are filled with silver
and their hearts are made of glass.
