                  Vivacious Lily                  

"The most valuable gift you can receive is an honest friend." ~Stephen Richards

To my best friend....you are the vivacious lily...truly a blessing in my life.

    in the mantle of the abounding sun

the Forever Susan Asiatic Lily bursts with life’s energy,

     upfacing in scintilla rays towards heavenly warmth,

dual hues of burgundy and burnt orange

           elevate in eloquence

                          a representation of friendship,

  six tepals an embodiment

               of the virtues that percolate life,

       the complexion vivaciously proffers

                        kindness and love,

     there’s found gentleness of influence,

 like the flower that captures her senses

             she is the gentle soul,

     the half of iron that sharpens1 others,

 an inspiration from strength unknown,

         2a friendship like the water reflection

of the flower so too the heart it reflects.
