In yam family, but not a yammer;
obviously, an obviator.
A flower, not an oboe relative,
which is to say florid conical shape:
never obsolete in nature’s garden,
nor obscene, nor obvious to sun,
because it prefers shade close to the ground
where its fruit lolls for mice to distribute
its seed in their small seed-like excrement.
It offers obverse umbrella profile
to obscure its private, inner working
all across Pakistan to Vietnam.
To observe this flower in detail,
detail in digital pic must suffice.
