Amaryllis Unfurling





Closed petals mature


in the midst


of my spear-shaped leaves,


blooming toward the sky,


as I wait with patience


for my aperture.


That time arrives soon


enough and the sun’s warmth


unfurls my blossoms


reaching for earth’s azure,


with its unlimited altitude.                         


I can express


immeasurable joy.


by showing my trumpeted,


variegated colors


for the world’s admiration.

About the Poet
Michelle Angelini, aka Chelle, has been writing poetry for over 40 years. She has been published in many Southern California chapbooks and calendars. I am retired and dealing with my health issues. My Saviour, Jesus is always with me. God holds me within His wings. I am working slowly on a second book poetry and possibly my photography. And, I'm over 65 now and still loving it, even though my social life is not what it once was because of the painful fibromyalgia. It's quite frustrating, but I know Jesus still has "work" for me to do to show how much He blesses me.
