Water Lily

Sun-full flower spring 
Open like a Jack-in-a-box!
Show us your true colors
Your bowl of bright sunrays
Bursting from pink and white petals
Served on leathery green plates,
Landing pads for bejeweled dragonflies
Hiding turtle's backs,
Harboring frogs in your folds 
Concealing silvery fish in 
Shadowy waters beneath.
