Desire's Blooming

Post by lady lemonbalm » Mon Nov 26, 2018 6:01 am

Midnight Gardening... now there's a fine idea.
Perhaps night plants are sown of first-star wishes? That wind teaching trees to dance?
Just a collection of forehead-pressed-to-window-pane sighs; hearts penciled in fog.
Moonlight pollination is nothing more than a breezy ballet of lamplight and longing.

I'll work by headlight then; I have before.
My shadow sniffs at the back of my hand, then scampers off.
As close as close and as far as far.
I feel the extra space in my body.
Room enough for sighs and sickles, or a seed pod for the moon.
