Between the prickly thorns
and the emerald foliage

The creatures scamper
leaving behind their footprints

As with life
he leaves his trace
upon her silk decollate

She moves her fingers softly
across her milky white flesh
as if
it were him

Touching her gently

Tender resemblance
and then
she open's her eyes

Starry eyes
that look
of a close encounter

A seamless landscape
of a man and woman

Their first wet kiss

She then resumes
to her work at hand
struggling to arrange
her lovely bouquet
flowers from her garden

Sprigs of sage and lavender
twigs and stems
birds of paradise

Tiny tea roses and baby's breath
and an empty vase

She sits in a lotus position
upon an elaborate Persian rug
assembling colors of blush pink
and an array of greenery and sunset orange

Her thoughts retrace
for just another moment...

Remembering that paper moon
and the origami crane
that they faceted with their hands

once upon a time

With a blink of her blue eyes

...a lasting revisit of when
they stenciled word art

He wrote her poetry and love letters
...as she always obliged
