from my front door, standing out, bright and tall, in a sea of grass...
Check out it's companions, within.
Just from my house I've seen 2 or 3.
Normally I never see any from the house.
I think they dug this late, WET spring; they're VERY TALL.
SO, so stunning. Such sophisticated flowers.
While something that intricate, grand, and tall
can leave you feeling clumsy and oafish by comparison,
I'm just so happy to see them.
Anytime they'll let me,
trundle over to worship.
From a respectful distance,
P.S. It's a Mariposa lily, Calochortus sp. Haven't looked it up, but did learn it's NOT Calochortus venustus 'cause it's square "gland" does make a bump on the outside of the petal. Such complex, mysterious creatures. Heavenly. *sigh*
