First Day Lily, Jamestown, NC

The Day Lily has only one day to live,
but that is time enough.

Dawn breaks in the East.
As the linen sky glows pink,
swelling buds respond.

The light signals life.
Sunbeams pierce the horizon,
and darkness recedes.

The flower opens.
Photo cells begin to charge,
and colorful petals furl.

New life is revealed.
As DNA is released,
the circle closes.
