a secret flower

joined together there, in power: 
petals of a secret flower 
known to few and daily, fewer: 
not for the prosaic viewer 
scanning life for fun or profit -- 
hoping to gain something off it.

joined together there, in wonder: 
miles above and four feet under 
that which many take as given: 
algorithm-machine driven, 
but it's there, i guarantee it 
if you will but stop 

and see it
