The Woman Made of Flowers

Post by Scattercat » Thu Jul 19, 2012 12:13 pm

The woman made of flowers winks one rosebud eye at me. Her eyelid is a glossy green leaf. I think it must be some sort of holly, to have that waxy sheen to it. Either that or she uses fakes, but she doesn't seem to be that kind of girl. The soft peonies in her cheeks shade to red in the middle, making a becoming blush, and I watch the supple vines of her legs sway as she tosses a final glance over her shoulder.

I get this all the time from flower ladies.

After all, I'm made of bees.

If you mean me, guess again. The plants are all trying to kill me, and have been for most of my life. I have to wear one of those anti-contagion masks and take a double-dose of antihistamine before I even mow the lawn. :-D

You actually made a plant sound sexy. Very vivid descriptions. Good one.

Flowers have long been associated with sexy-beauty. It's why you give your prom-date a corsage. Both symbolically and visually reminiscent of human sexual beauty. The flower of youth and all that.

I thought it was because flowers are literally plant reproductive organs?

Exactly, they are a literal symbol, if you will.

Every time I say the word "bees" I think of two things:

This and this.

BEEEEEEES!
