Chihuly Glass 

 

From Chihuly’s forge, a primal shaping: 

          whorls of glass anemone and kelp,

                    cusps and coils, 

                              seaflower petals in cobalt splay, 

                     ochre eels sinuous as lovers:

          ecstasy in vermillion slurry, 

a silicon alchemy

           bequeathing double-helical

                      bridal bouquets—a floral glass unity—

                                 to a fractured world.
