Night Flowers

by Prospero E. Pulma, Jr.

There are flowers for daylight and
Flowers for the long night;
On marble and granite beds
Only night flowers bloom
To taunt sunshine.

Phantasmal in the darkness,
Callous to the tearful stillness,
Cold like their beds of marble and granite,
The night flowers bloom
After the last light.
