i love flowers
i have never seen anything like this one though
the neighbourhood boys,
edwardo and ricardo
saw this flower high up on a tree on the east side of the island
they were with their dad at a kiln
the only way they could get it was to
climb up a mountain of sawdust
(to quote ricardo)
that was as high as the tree
and finally they were able to get a flower for me
they just kept thinking:
'oh debi would love this!'
they are right!
i wish i knew what it is called
i also hope that they grow up to be men
who will go to great lengths to get beautiful things
for the one they love.
oh by the way,
the fragrance is intoxicating!
i have it sitting on the dining room table and
with the sea breeze the smell is deliciously sweet
