it happened one night
the room was very dark in
shadows, was almost
invisible
footsteps hushed to whispering
a potted chrysanthemum was
placed on a tabletop
doors closed inaudibly
deep pink flowers
within the midnight
when the chrysanthemums faded
they were replaced by brilliant crocuses
no coming or going was discovered
this occurred for many lifetimes
movement wasn`t perceived
a mystery
an unknown story a hidden miracle
