Secrets and gemstones
Ancient daisies
Wings gave
Gentle resistance
Shyly futile

In action
A curious
Careful wanderer
Who scouted
And came upon
The pyramids

Pressing aside
Doors to the labyrinth
Known to no one
As dust shakes off
The carefully carved
Designs on the door
Floor and walls

Revealing a soft
And fleshy
Diamond underbelly
Watered well
Feels like a soft
Silky smooth petal
On an alluring stem

What venerable
Fertile masonry this was
To carry on nurturing
These little clusters of
Primary colored
Flowers and shrubs
All covered in time soot

Tarnished silver platters
And the attentively placed
Ornately paved ceramics
At the cusp of
Wandering hands
Filled with flowers
And precious stones

Eyes of the pyramid
Both in an underground
Atrium vault
With elaborate grottos
Holding up ornaments
Feather stems in flower pots
Petal stones discovered taut
