His Face in the Vase

The final splay of our tulip
is a table top Ferris wheel
purple petals wide
as a lion’s mane.

Flowering jumble
in a water jar, the bulb
bring life and the stem snipped
for the day’s bouquet.

The kitchen wild for it,
the meal graced,
the wet grey spring
proposes from the window.

Husband and wife working
the home hours
chance a glance at the bloom
and remember Who gives.
