mama prized these blossoms
favored the purest of white
floating fragrant in waterbowls
welcoming guests to her
humblest of dining room tables
evoking exotic mystiques
of her girlish adorations
Greta Garbo and Verdi’s
Dumas inspired La Traviata
all figured so prominently
between leaves of the delicate
scrapbook she kept eighty years
