a fully grown person

an adult,

fully grown

 

the flower seed sprouted, the implant picked and taken to

.. the table, dried and drawn out in water closed

the sun rises and falls

 

the moon

the flowers die without it, not only the water's grip

then back to again, now only brittle and broken

 

the thimble of her thumb

she does not mark it until her lips have touched softly,

the ground
