Pink Celandine, Flower of Flowers!

Our love
is like the pink celandine
which grew
even after other flowers had died.
People stood to watch
as it spread out
through windows,
down onto pavements,
across roads,
along motorways.
They were fascinated and surrounded.
Nothing moved but the flower
which grew and kept growing.
The pink celandine
which survives us,
that is the most beautiful flower
of them all.

The final poem in the cycle of six. Botanists and art historians will be perplexed.
