The trembling lily

The loose connection
between beginning
and frayed end
twisted and fell to the slippery floor
of stubborn blindness
no one could hold
the burnt flowers of fear
and they too landed
on the slowly disappearing
ground of tired belief
there must be something new
he thought
as the entire circus tent
exploded in sudden fire
and blew away
leaving a trembling
fragrant lily of delight
