rising in early spring
i grow with milky eyes
nestling amidst a whorl of 3 leaves
sharing the forest floor with ostrich ferns,
and wild ginger, my three-pointed bloom
a trinity of beauty
under shades of blue ash trees
my scent of lemon oil, alluring
even as i droop by summer, i'm pink, pink, pink-
Note: large flowered trillium is the provincial flower of Ontario, Canada.
