Fatal attraction

Immaculate flame
Suddenly
Shooting out of the darkness
turns magically
Into a bewitching sea anemone
Trying to seduce its next preys...
O dangerous Beauty
I agree to be the first one!

GORGEOUS.

your best poem to date alain...love julian's peony described as a bewitching sea anemone. i am captivated not only by the flower, but that tiny little capsule of a vase.

Thank you blg.
About the "tiny little capsule", the flower seems to have no stem above the water, that's what did strike me first.
