a swirl of red petals

this love between us,
dreamlike and ephemeral. impermanent.

your lips join
with mine, bulbous and blooming
like wildflowers in secret meadows
under soft sun.
your tongue seeks
warmth. extracting and revelling in
nectarous sweetness.

I swoon and leave red petals
where our embrace was felt,
like fingers of grass that dance
drenched in moody, far-away fragrance.
you lie spent, breathing and

but we are gone…dispersed
like dandelion
carried away by gentle breeze.
and now, redolent, aching nights
fill all tomorrows
we promised
each other.
