laden with tears
the peony blossom
bows to the ground

laden with tears
the peony begins to blossom
drinking in joy

~~~

the peony blossom
spills it’s fragrance
into the dawn

~~~

bowing to the ground
peony bush abounding with flowers
quivers in moonlight

trembling in the dawn
peony bush spills her beauty
onto the terrace
twilight falls on soft pink petals
waltzing into night
