The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Image_02_Sept2021Maybe I Should
by Alina Măciucă

A saucer magnolia tree sprang from my grave
a long time before I
contemplated
how many
seasons
have passed since my enterrement.
I sometimes grab its roots when I toss and turn.
We hold hands.

The bee that just stung you
— so much pain caused by such a tiny creature —
has been foraging on its flowers
for quite a while,
and that minuscule tear in your skin
is a door for me to go in
and make myself comfortable
inside you.
I haven’t decided yet, though.
If I leave, the saucer magnolia
will wither
without my hand to hold.
I could bring it with me, and an abundance
magnolia flowers would grow out of
your mouth, your ears, your nostrils.
I just hope you don’t mind bees
that much.

    A darkly wonderful poem.

  2. Great concepts here – love where the prompt took you – I adore magnolia trees but I might stay just out of reach of the one in my garden from now on. 🙂
