Blossoms

Fresh acne flowers on her cheeks,
in full bloom beneath the eyes
she is a garden, flourishing as
fresh as fern leaf peony
how lovely is she.

Rosacea, like rose patches,
presents an antique pattern,
precious, impermanent,
painting the skin.

Oh, how pretty she is.
Daughters with skin
the shade of Dahlia,
delight in the youth
of your beautiful face.

Embrace the
grace of your
natural beauty.
The lace of the
lines outlining
your brightening
smile.

There is so much
left to become.
Lady Bugs,
You are beautiful
bump to bump.
