Lilies on Jupiter

How can they still bloom?
Lilies on Jupiter
funnels of lungs emptied
into vacuums of desire
with twirling sighs of mixed aromas
how can they still breathe?
Lilies on Jupiter
Unquenched bulbs buried
in dried amber streams
carrying shadows of water
how can they still linger
Lilies on Jupiter
While the love lullabies
of winged-lovers
fading into whispers in the wind
how can they still dance?
Lilies on Jupiter
Scars of butterfly hearts
imprinted on white petals
in the absence of the sun
how can they still gleam?
Lilies on Jupiter
how can they still bloom?
Lilies on Jupiter
will they be ever blooms?
Lilies on Jupiter
