The Lilac Forest

Safe within the warmth of a white backdrop,
A family of lilacs are drawn black.
Stems are tangled from a bird's eye angle,
And the comforting forest turns its back.

In correlation to the sudden switch,
The light and darkened patterns are reversed,
But the flowers have grown all on their own
In two-dimensional towers dispersed.

How cool is the side which so blackened by
The calm of the night and reach of the sky
To pierce through the eye of the bird who flies
Above the insides of a lantern slide?

Arise from the dirt, young lilacs, transcend!
Surprise the forest, or profess our end.

- Alexander McCurdy
