Queen of the Night

Cereus by Sara Fryd

Cereus by Sara Fryd

Such beauty still born at night

protected from prying eyes of man.

Lighting the way in the darkness

for a heartbeat,

confirming for non believers

the true existence of God.

The cereus queen awakes

for twelve hours

so we can breathe in her light

her smile…

until the bees drink her nectar at dawn

then she dies.
