On life and its vagaries


with 4 comments

Rafflesia is not really seen in the Amazon forests.  It  was found in  in Indonesia . Its name may mean “meat flower”


Now, a flower is little  more than a flower

Yet taken to its potential , it becomes something violent

Hungry and vengeful

It then  travels into the midst of the Amazons

And becomes a Rafflesia

Unfolding in deadly stealth

It lays in  composed wait

Seething its auric desire

Sending it forth to entrap the gullible

The living comes

Is devoured

The flower thrives

  4. This guy ( meaning my own poor self) has minimal ego dear Trisha.

    Nothing I ever write really appeals to me. So there won’t be any wows on my part on me and your wow is out of kindness.

    I was only saying so , there was nothing complex and mysterious in it 🙂
