Nearly Wordless Wednesday; Cups of Fire

No editing other than cropping, this is how they actually looked.

                                                           In A Cuban Garden
                                                                          by Sara Teasdale

                                                           Hibiscus flowers are cups of fire,
                                                           (Love me, my lover, life will not stay)
                                                           The bright poinsettia shakes in the wind,
                                                           A scarlet leaf is blowing away.

                                                           A lizard lifts his head and listens-
                                                           Kiss me before the noon goes by,
                                                           Here in the shade of the cebia hide me
                                                           From the great black vulture circling the sky.

So it's not a Cuban garden, rather a visit to Molbaks  but  I better understand Teasdale's image now!
