Pandora’s Box

Pandora's Box daylily

 

She was sure Yesterday

was dead and gone. She had,

after all, buried it deep

in a wooden crate

under the old apple

tree (the one that split

down the trunk

during the storm of

’79). So

when it raised its hoary

head, she knew

someone had opened

Pandora’s Box.

*************

This daylily’s name? Pandora’s Box, of course.

    A lily named Pandora’s Box! That could get worrying 🙂 She is gorgeous no matter her name. How many different kinds of lilies do you have? Do you know?
