Lily

I hook a Calla lily stem,
and rob the stamen of the creamy
pollen hovering
like small atmosphere
around its finger planet,
rubbing it on my cheek
in a sudden suburban ritual,
drawing in some earthly connection
however paltry,
to the security of seasons,
terrestrial rhythms
among the cement, exhaust,
and screens that delineate most days.

Heidi Morrell lives and writes in Los Angeles/Hollywood and is not a celebrity, but has a poetry Chapbook from Finishing Line Press among many poetry publications.
