Ginger Blossom

In Santa Cruz
The ginger is in bloom,
Well, one blossom anyway,
In the patch right next to
The ever lovely alstromeria.
And one great blossom,
As you know,
Is worth more than
A bunch of bitty blips.
The ginger blossom is great,
Its aroma could be floral;
Could be food.
It just smells good.
And it looks so exotic
With pale yellow petals
and bright red stamens.
