What Comes, Stays and Breathes

I will, I am, and with no doubt ever,

enraptured by the willful, ever awe,

when my eyes meet yours, and sand

couldn’t put them out; by the sour

morning mounts, belittled and sharp,

and I think about your golden light,

for evermore, and with the sanctity

of a monk in prayer, your fountain

I will anoint in, like a butterfly to a

Calendula, on the warmest day in a

year of fruit and wine, I am at the

mercy of your fragrance, raw and

timid, wistful and gracious, truest

morning glory, Delphinium, Phlox,

Scabiosa, Verbena, Liatris, forever.
