SWEET PEAS AND LAVENDER
SWEETPEAS AND LAVENDER
Sweet peas and lavender exasperate beauty.
With hues beyond flames of a setting sun,
And scents more explosive than the hawthorn's glory.
Delicate yet bold, from exile they entice
The regal red bullfinch to join in the fest.
It wouldn't be summer without these two,
That tear open my chest to exhume my heart;
Then stroking, they resuscitate with a soft lullaby.
Delicate yet bold; I am forced to recall
Every nuance, every glance of that red troubadour.
