Clone

“It was a sunburst of sound,

breaking out of hiding

and spreading open.

It had the freedom of release

and the tension of purpose.

It swept space clean, and left nothing

but the joy of an unobstructed effort.”

— Ayn Rand

flamboyant dahlia

showers its blazing petals

clones the warming sun
